In China – Is Anything Ever Fair? Google and Counterfeiting

January 16, 2010 Leave a comment

The recent bruhaha between Google and the Chinese government over censorship and the government’s hacking of some gmails reminds me how much every IP owner in the world has suffered as a result of the complicity of the Chinese government with counterfeiting and piracy over the last 35 years – sometimes directly, as in the cases were members of the government or armed forces actually own the plants making the illegal stuff – but more commonly in the carefully built rope-a-dope creation of an enforcement system guaranteed to do nothing. I don’t know about you, but I am really pulling for Google on this one.
