Does China really ignore IPR protection?

Over the past few years, China has been transforming from the world's factory to an innovation leader. This year, again, witnesses its efforts and development as China moved to the top 14 most-innovative economies in the annual Global Innovation Index (GII), strengthening its position as a leading innovative nation.

Despite all the progress and achievement, however, we still keep hearing U.S. accusing China of "stealing" American intellectual property. What's behind the accusation by the U.S. government? In what ways has China been dedicated to intellectual property application as well as IPR protection? In this episode of "Ask China," CGTN gathered questions from people outside China and went to experts to discover and decode some of the most discussed issues about China's intellectual property issues.
