After enjoyed the inexpensive products, now you want back the money you paid? Look at what jobs Chinese are doing. Are you sure you really want the high-pollution jobs back? War, war, you guys know nothing but war

If the current presidential campaign rhetoric translates into action, we'll likely get a trade war with China. It will serve short-term politic interests but will do little or nothing to solve systemic problems like IP theft. EE Times has identified scholars and other experts in China with close ties to its technology sector who are trying to change Beijing's attitude toward IP. That may seem insignificant, but China is legally obligated under the WTO IP agreements to put in place the legal underpinnings to protect IP. We need to hold Beijing's feet to the fire on this, but a trade war isn't the best mechanism for doing that.

Huawei blatantly copied Cisco designs. Did the Chinese govt respond to Cisco's claims. So why shouldn't a US company go the US govt and get redress one way or another? We need a trade war with China. After all, they are waging an industrial war with us stealing IP and dumping products at below cost.

Despite its IP dispute with Huawei, Cisco has done very well in the Chinese market. There were also a number of reports, most notably in the Financial Times, that Cisco assisted the Chinese government by providing network monitoring capabilities.

The fact that this war is fought on US market should be a warning to all of us in the tech industry. Cisco can cry to Uncle Sam for help here, but who are they going to cry to in Zambia? Or heaven forbid, in China? Look at all those huge companies filled to the brim with animated PPT. You are the next.....
