Barbara, exactly and moreover they don’t want to change it also. But publically/officially they spoke well about the requirement of protecting IPs and copy rights.

Douglas, one thing is very evident from Chinese government ‘they speaks well and do something else’. I don’t know how they are going to treat US laws and treaties. But they had done similar thing with most of the Asian countries and always a defaulter in executing treaties and laws in correct sense.

Douglas makes a good point. To date, IP enforcement in China has been posturing, and there's no reason to belive that will chnage. I read somehwere that it has to do with the idea that in a communist/socilast socirty, there is no private property--everything belongs to the state/population. If that is the case, this is a cultural, rather than legal, challenge for US and other nations.

NO!!!! It will only make it harder for CHINA to copy our parts/units/phones. As we all know trade only goes one way. (from CHINA)

I was wondering what the people in CHINA, KOREA and INDIA, that are assembling the TV's, phones and all the other various electronics think about not being able to afford to buy these wonderful devices? Or in CHINA, have no time to watch TV! (Work, eat, sleep.)

I agree with you curbing the problem as well as other lapses in IT/High Tech Biometric solutions look like jewel to solve those issues. What about the cost of investing in technology like this?

@Jacob...You are correct. IN fact that is why one of the Chinese "pledges" was to crack down on government agencies using pirated software. The Chinese government has truned a blind eye to this practice and admitting they plan to clean house, they are tacitly admitting they know how imminent the problem is in their own ranks. I think this is a wait and see scenario and I am watching for the announcements in China Daily. If I see of a crackdown or pirate bust I will post the news. I also am going to start reading the lesser known, more contraversial papers like the Southern Weekly now garnering much US press due to the protests response by the Chinese government. Interesting stuff. I hope before the US makes any agreement concessions we have a "trust, then verify" approach so the pledges and changes are not all one way.

"For many years, software piracy and other intellectual property rights (IPR) have been major concerns for US software companies where there are more pirated copies than authorized and licensed versions in places like China and India"

Douglas, nothing going to ha happen with respect to piracy because it's a Chinese government sponsored program. Quiet sometime back, I had visited some of the government labs and universities in China; in most of the places they are using cracked/pirated versions of software. When I talked with one of the fellow he casually responded that "why should we purchase the original version for making such MNcs richer"

Perhaps the OCM's need to start getting serious about using DNA marking as a counter measure to all the counterfeits.  There seems to be a lot of push back against moving forward with that in spite of the proven technology (at least according to APDN and the DLA).

You are right. Law enforcement on this in China has to to be really in place. Lots of simple electronic products are cloned so far. Die, eeprom content,  PCB circuit design and many more.
