Good move. IP = wealth and it is time everyone understands that.

Very interesting. With all the Chinese nationals attending and teaching in universities in the West, including in the most prestigious and competitive ones, one almost wonders how come there aren't more outspoken ones like Prof. Chen. It will be fascinating to see how this evolves. I have to believe that IP issues certainly, but a whole host of other apparent disconnects between our ways of thinking, can't help but come closer together in time. Especially since universtities in the US and other western countries continue to seek, very actively, Chinese and other foreign students and faculty. Do a web search on the demographic makeup of entering Freshmen in Ivy League and any other prestigious universities, and you can't help but see this trend. I can't help but believe this will bear fruit eventually.

Eventually the chinese will discover that when you do not respect other peoples IP, then they will not respect yours. When China reaches a point where they can truely develop new IP, they will face the dilema. To produce products with the IP will jeopardize their control. Yet, failing to profit from their IP will remove the profit and technical advantage they may have created. In short, they will be damned if they do and damned if they don't. Welcome to the new open society.

Well it's a matter of realizing you can't have your cake and eat it too.

What great irony, this professor coins a phrase "Open Innovation Platform" that is already a registered Trademark of TSMC. Next time do a little search on Google before re-using a well-known term in the semiconductor industry. http://www.tsmc.com/english/dedicatedFoundry/services/oip.htm

For the last 20 years the West has been committing slow suicide ( much like being hooked on dope ) by dealing with China, training its Scientists / Engineers and transferring technology for free. Like some human "Ibola virus" China is devouring the West alive. The only people still advocating free trade with China or defending its " grand theft - IP " are the Wall St. 1 % ers who have profited by deliberately giving away US competitiveness to China and the pols, media hacks and shoddy academics they have rented to defend their looting of America among the masses who are still brain washed with 'free' trade.

One thing I would like to ask our readers is the following: If funding is available in China -- either on federal, provincial or municipal levels, wouldn't you like to pitch your project to China, get the capital and see if your technology/product may take off in China? If yes, then who do you talk to in China? How do you go about it?

Junko, I have personal experience in this area. The process I've seen used is to partner with a Chinese businessman/engineer here in the U.S. who has "connections" back in China.

Yes, I recognize that's how things are usually done. As long as you have a Chinese businessman that you trust, and that person has a "good connection" back home, that's probably the way to go. Did you get the funding you were looking for? Can that model scale?
