There are other aspects concerning the protection of so-called intellectual property that will, bite us, in the end. First, is our deficit spending. Essentially we are exporting to China the money to buy our corporate assets of which so-called intellectual property is an integral component. See my post: China and US Fiscal Responsibility.

You may also be interested in this U-tube video: Chinese Professor. I think it is pretty reminiscent Apple's 1984 add introducing the Macintosh computer.

Perhaps, even more absurd, the US has become manic concerning "national security". Logically, if we were concerned that our deficit spending is providing the capital for China to buy our intellectual property we would balance the budget. The NY Times wrote: "Some in Congress and the national security establishment fear that Huawei's close ties to the Chinese military might allow China to tamper with American communications gear." and "China's $2.2 billion investment Chesapeake Energy involves a potential transfer of technology and intellectual knowledge to Beijing that some people in Washington may find uncomfortable, and that unease could trip up the deal." It's ridiculous to insist on "strong" IP when we are creating an environment that allows the Chinese buy our IP.

Like the Hitler parodies, the Chinese Professor is generating a bunch of parodies. The one below is closer to the intent of this post since "intellectual property" is actually mention. (40 seconds into the video)
