US using wrong reason to wage a trade war

The United States is using the pretext of intellectual property rights (IPR) to intensify the trade conflict with China. But China's measures to better protect IPR should be based on facts that conform to international rules, instead of the US' misinterpretations that tend to violate those rules.

China has made great progress in IPR protection since launching its reform and opening-up policy, by consistently bringing IPR legislation in line with relevant international conventions. From the 1980s to the early 1990s, China promulgated a series of laws and regulations, such as the trademark, patent, copyright, and anti-unfair competition laws, to establish a basic legal framework for IPR protection.

Around the time it joined the World Trade Organization in 2001, China had overhauled its major IPR laws, and enacted some special regulations on the protection of new plant varieties and semiconductor chips, establishing a legal framework for IPR protection in line with international standards.
