During the training, Professor Wang shared from four aspects: made in China, China's creation and intellectual property power, intellectual property competition in the era of intellectual property, intellectual property and international trade, Sino US trade relations, and reconstruction of international trade order.
Professor Wang pointed out: "the competition of the future world is the competition of intellectual property rights. Intellectual property rights are not only related to the market competitiveness of enterprises, but also an important factor of national core competitiveness. At the same time, Professor Wang analyzed the relationship between intellectual property rights and international trade by introducing the topic of whether the technology is infringing or not, combining with three Sino US trade frictions in the 1990s. In international trade, it is emphasized to eliminate various trade barriers and promote the free circulation of goods. Intellectual property has distinct characteristics of specialization and regionality. As a kind of trade barrier, it will affect the development of international trade to a certain extent. How to eliminate barriers and promote economic and trade development while protecting intellectual property rights is the first issue we should consider next.
Secondly, Professor Wang vividly shows us the specific situation of unilateral protection from the perspective of ITC and 337 survey. Taking the intellectual property disputes between Zhejiang Tongling Technology Co., Ltd. and the United States of America as an example, this paper describes the intellectual property competition that Chinese enterprises encounter in international trade.
