What goes up will surely come down and in the process IP will be stolen. This is the beginning.

If it's so easy to copy, don't make it a key product!

I do not see why anyone is surprised that the Chinese are not playing by the rules. For centuries the western nations exploited the Chinese to build thier empires. Now China is just following their example to rebuild their country after its recent exploitation and make it an Asian, if not a World power. So if you think China is your friend, think again. If you provide them with any intellectual property, they will copy it. If you do not secure your IP, they will find a way to take it any way they can. Why? Because they can and no one wants to confront or provoke them because they still think China is an open market. It is not! You either play on China's terms or you get out. QED!

Controling the copying fully is not possible. That is the reason big companies like Agilent,Tek continually improve thier product spec and its features. Those who ever update their products will be able to hold their market share. Some of the competeitve china products seems to perform equally good with long term stability.

This has been going on for some time now, nothing new. I can't see anything changing in the near future given China's economic clout and Western economic woes.

It is really good that Chnia brings down the cost T and M Instruments. However, it is totally unetical to copy IP. China can and should design their own products from basic specifications. This may not be very expensive for company who can capture good part of world market.

If a product can be re-engineered by just copy and assemble, I strong doubt there are a lot of valuable IP involved. In order to compete, a new company always introduces a similar product with a lower price. Yet, in order to sustain its own business, the company has to continue to improve the product. If it can't stay ahead of the game, it's going to be seen as 2nd tier and will never be able to compete effective with an innovative company.

Still i think chinese have to put in their own RnD efforts.we have checked equipment from various makers from china.Only rigol seems to be quality product,may be bcz it is backed by China.Goodwill of taiwan is really undisputed Price /quality leader to date.And judging their active RnD and increasing product portfolio ,they will remain Industry leader.

R&D is still important in T&M field and I believe price is not the only factor that keeps a company in good shape. People who is still innovative can still be the leader, of course margins may be thinner than before but it should still be high and attractive for players.

If this happened in the US, Agilent, Tek and every other T&M company would have the China OEMs before the ITC and other courts faster than you can say "patents."
