Dear Junko : of all your articles on Electronics in the Far East I enjoyed this one on mass produced copies of western art the most. It captures both China's drive to export as well as brazen violation of international norms because we are always looking for a bargain. But you have been very balanced and even mentioned how Japan, your own native country, went through the same phase after WW II. What you have diplomatically omitted to mention is that while it took Japan at most 3 decades to reach parity with the US ( by export ) and then become more self - sustained in terms of technology etc., it would take China perhaps 200 years to reach that stage ( their population being at least 6x of Japan and 3x of the US and current per capita by PPP still 1/5 th ). One wonders how much more misery will be brought on the World economy, resources & environment ( killing rhinos and tigers for their horns & parts instead of just buying Viagra ) by China's irresponsible urge to catch up after 5 centuries of mostly self - created stagnation.

What a real reason that countries such as China and India need to have produce that much of population. I heard its reason is because of war especially for China wheres they need to sustain enough manpower for soldiers to combet foreign invasion. But how about India what are thier reason. And if combine the mainland and outside diasporas this two races is the largest. Even sometimes I thinking like this two races is like the choosen race in earth (I know its not true, just a naughty thoughts). Anyway, what actually is the real reason behind it. If USA which land as big as China having just 316 M population which I speculate able to produce a number like China but not to do so, why is China? Not to say they can't have large population but for what reason? Thanks.

Luckily,I live near Da Fen Village,it's a place famous for the paintings.It's a beautiful place that we can see many famous paintings and it does have a hisotry.They are almost copies,that's true.but at least we can know them,enjoy them,or even afford to one.Butfor the REAL ones,we just heard from the internet or hisotry book,we maybe never have a chance to know them,so do you think it's a loss for the paintings or the artists ? AND,how can you just name China as Knockoff nation ? Is that because of the copy paintings ? I think all the contries have copy-things

How about every people in earth just stop complaining and just get along and live a peaceful life. Not every countries in earth should every time come out with original idea or invention to become a counrty or great country. If this is taken as a world rule and must be obey I'm sure not many country will became a developed nation not even european countries, not even USA or Japan, S.Korea etc. We must knew its not newly happen today but has occur long time ago. But we as human must not forgot we are one species, we are not be neighbors or live with alien or something in this earth, its our own species. That why everybody should be thankful when we are given or blessed with genius, inventor, smart human not matter its White, Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Arad, Black or etc. That mean no conflicted. Here, in this tread we are not talking about more deeper matter like religon, culture, ideology or so on wheres problem its more complicated to solve to unite all human as one earth inhabitant. But just business, human creation, or technology metter. But to solve it as I state above we must think as one,and it can't be solve if people complicated their thingking. Thanks.

Hi, Candy77. Let me clarify a few things here. I enjoyed visiting Da Fen Village and I do admire the great work done by those copyists there. I have a great respect for them and their work. But the point for my writing this story was to use Da Fen as a metaphor. When the Da Fen village some day becomes famous as an artist colony where genuinely original art is being developed (which I hear the Shenzhen government had been hoping for), these artists, I am sure, will find richer rewards. I have nothing against Da Fen. Rather, I was impressed with the way all the merchants and artists came together, and developed such an efficient ecosystem around their business -- much the same way the Pearl River Delta region has flourished.

When the international corp. moneybags go to China they know full well that their ideas will be taken, their methods will be copied and yet they choose to go anyway. They dump their engineers at home and use cheaper once in China looking to make more and more money. Well the locals take advantage by learning and copying whatever they can, in a way compensating themselves for lover pay. Can you blame them?
