Senators Blast China on IP Enforcement

December 16, 2010 -

On Monday, two prominent U.S. Senators released a new government report (US International Trade Commission study) showing that "widespread counterfeiting and piracy in China" has had an impact on U.S. economic interests. Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus and Senator Charles Grassley, who requested the report, are highlighting its findings because high-level US China trade talks are taking place this week in Washington.

"China continually fails to protect and enforce American intellectual property rights and discriminates against American businesses," Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus said in a statement that accompanied the report.

"Small steps and empty promises won't cut it when American jobs are on the line. This week's US China trade talks are the perfect opportunity for China to make serious commitments to address these issues. It is time for action," Baucus added.

Is is just me, or does this just seem like loud impotence? Our Senators are "blasting" or biggest lender, e.g., our bank. We're basically people on the brink of foreclosure pounding on the bank doors and demanding that they use better stationary. It doesn't make sense.

I completely agree!!!

This should be on top of China's priority list. we can overlook child labor, the lack of freedom of speech, the cencorship of internet and journalism and even the Tiananmen Square thing.  But don't you dare threathen the American jobs by discriminating against Americans by not enforcing the American laws in your country. 

Nevermind the chinese people their needs, China's authorities should concentrate on saving american jobs.

Re: Senators Blast China on IP Enforcement

They're not talking about enforcing American laws in China, they're talking about enforcing international law regarding intellectual property.

Love your logic there, too.  "B is more important than A, so let's take absolutely no action on A.  Obviously a government the size of China's is incapable of addressing more than one issue at a time."

MattsworknameKarp, having play bloodborne all the way to the end levels, I can attest that arin is not really good, but hes suprisingly fast at it, and he would probably be better if he was better at countering. Still fun as hell to watch them play'06/02/2015 - 6:30pm

Wonderkarpyeah, Arin is surprisingly really good at Bloodborne. And Danny is a cornucopia of fun stories. I also love their brilliant way of reading negative comments on their videos by reading them in the voice of Dale Gribble. I started doing it06/02/2015 - 5:48pm
Sora-ChanMaybe she's secretly a cat. Don't know, never payed the Rune Factory games, I think they were on my list of things to get years ago though..06/02/2015 - 5:46pm
