I dont see things changing in coming days. I think this trend will continue till some drastic measures are taken by firm itself rather than relying on chinese government. I dont turst chinese government, recently leaked cables showed possible hand of chinese Govt in cyber hacking. So its pretty hard to think that they will worry about US IP's.

@ warren, exactly. May be more applicable to chinese market also. Currently all the foreign products/IPs are cloned and sold for very low prices in China. But in future when products with chinese IP comes to market,they would want to enforce all the IP rights and wouldnt let foreign companies sell in chinese market. http://www.clonedinchina.com/

Warren has it basically correct. Usually people ignore or avoid things until it gets right in their face and starts poking them in the nose. Even if we acknowledge what China does, there is no need to accept that, and companies should move to enforce their IPR's aggressively. To not do so will encourage violations.

I don't exactly agree. I'm thinking they'll ignore the rules, by and large, right up to the point when they have substantial volumes of IP and sufficient IP at odds with others and then we'll see China become ferocious advocates for the defense of international IP rights.

Selling China on the virtues of IP protection will be an uphill battle. US fiscal policy (quantitative easing etc.) is killing the value of their dollar reserves, leaving the west looking like the bad guys. So while the old Maoist pragmatism is slowly giving way to fair(er) play in global markets, turmoil outside China gives them an excuse to circle the wagons and stoke the fires of nationalism.

I agree that IP needs to be respected but the situation in China is so complex and different. Foreign country can't simply put their rules set to China. It takes time for China to evolve and respect other's creation.

Since they can beat others on price with their criminal labor rates, this will continue until the US companies can have outlooks longer than 90 days.

It is a developing nation. Do not expect anything less. China will do this at its own pace.
