Where should China stand in the international negotiations on intellectual property?

Xuyuan
China is moving from passively accepting economic and trade rules to actively making international economic and trade rules. China now aims to be "actively participating in global governance". In the process of participating in global governance, one of the most essential issues for China is to define its identity. So, in international negotiations of intellectual property, should China stand on the side of the developing world or on the side of the developed world? Or, should it have its own separate position? This question is explored by considering the development of China’s economics and science and technology.
