Wow. An export tariff. I haven't heard of that happening since the 19th century. Anybody still believe that the Chinese believe in free trade???

unfortunately its unlikely possible. US, EU or let say world is so much addicted to cheap chinese work force, and moved almost everything to there. Now they have power of production and slowly resources. The alert time is already over, now we should focus on new tech. which wont require their involvement, and think over of globalization

Since it will take quite a few years to start getting to the point of producing these metals, the patents don't become an issue until they are being used. Sounds like we are already behind in getting started if they expire in 2014!

I just want to ask Mr. President, how he is planning to overcome this huge problem indeed he is mentioning everywhere how important it is to focus on renewable energy and not paying huge amount of $s to middle east. Well it seems US will pay lots of $s to China, or IP costs to korea, japan, oh not forgetting has to bring back industrialization back to US with many jobs.

Just issue fast-track visas to scientists and engineers specialized in rare-earth refinery technologies. The time frame could be cut down to less than 10 years.
