This paper jointly analyzes the texts of Australian national laws, policies and bilateral agreements concerning big data, innovation and intellectual property by putting them in the context of Australia’s specific national conditions. It points out that Australia’s status as one of the poorest performers in innovation among developed nations may explain why Australia upholds flexible, tolerant and sharing ideas for big data, innovation and intellectual property. It suggests that a nation’s domestic construction of intellectual property and innovation systems should respect its own national conditions. A detailed examination of Australia’s practice confirms this view and China should apply a similar approach.
