If companies paying for people to develop IP shouldn't make profit off of intellectual property, then it would make sense that the person creating the invention should not get paid either. Our patent system may be in need of a serious tune up, but people with a high brain to brawn ratio are not allowed to profit from the fruits of their labors, they will stop and go move boxes or do something else that will pay the bills.

IP absolutely IS property. It is the result of an investment of hard assets to create an innovation - process, product, etc. - and it is entirely appropriate to expect protection of the ownership on that newly created asset in order to achieve a return on investment. Without that, what could possibly be the motivation for continued investment? More to the point, what would finance that ongoing investment? You have to generate profits from innovation in order to continue to fuel the process.

come on people - IP is not property. limited monopolies are granted for a purpose: to grow the whole, not to permit innovation to be hoarded. that's what's so fundamentally broken in the current worldwide IP regime: dumb MBA-think has distorted the concept into some kind of design-wise turf war, when the purpose of IP protection is to maximize innovation by letting others build on your ideas. in other words, IP doesn't mean you're somehow "owed" profits because you came up with something novel and non-obvious. (not to mention the fact that current IP schemes make a mockery of the novel/non-obvious requirement!)

I think China will want to have it both ways. Strong IP protection in order to play in the global marketplace, but reserving an idealogical right to co-opt it for the good of China. The west will depend on pragmatism to trump nationalism, which works in the short term. And the short term is all the west understands.

Cool, can we have some of that manufacturing back then in the US? China is probably sick of it by now anyway, right?

IP protection and, in general, moral standard have to be improved to make innovation possible. IP protection will guarantee the invention is not stolen internally. Moral standard is important in teh area of pharmaceutical research. Law may help restore the order.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
