This thesis examines how patent rights and competition rules can be adapted and cooperate in achieving their common goal of promoting dynamic innovation and enhancing consumer welfare, in particular China's approach to issues arising from the patent system and competition law interfaced regime. This research study presents an analysis of both internal and external interfaces between patent protection and competition law. The first two chapters of the thesis discuss competition within the patent law and the balance between initial and follow-on innovators, and the last two chapters of the thesis focus on external restraints imposed by competition policies on the exercise of patent rights.
