IP Protection in China

leave a comment

In the annual meeting of the U.S.-China Joint Commission on Commerce and Trade, the delegates from China promised a harsher crackdown on copyright / IP infringement. I think this is a great thing for China to do if the government is serious in developing a service and creativity based economy. One of the key reasons why the software industry in China has not developed to a stage where it should have been is exactly because of the lack of copyright protection. Piracy is a huge dis-incentive for software companies in China.
