" Copying " shouts from the Coward's Castle.
" Copying Copying !" screamed and shrilled the defeated and the vanquished . " Not fair, not fair " echoed the fellow casualties . This scene was fully played out when the Japanese produced cheap and good cameras, transistors, cars and everything else after WWII. " Piracy, nasty Japs " protested the bigots and the lame, smashing up Japanese goods in public and mounting a boycott. Of course these same zealots continued to buy Japanese goods and many made a good living being distributors of the same range of goods. Ever heard of humbug and hypocrisy ? They are patented practices of the USA. |
Now it is China's turn. " Counterfeit, contraband, cheap, dumping and of course ' copying ' " reads that soiled and sordid banner. The real story tells of a failed, outpaced and outsmarted have-been society , cringing and lamenting that they are not able to compete anymore.
It is worth remembering that these " patencies " were never an issue when the West were pilfering, stealing and hijacking other peoples' inventions, innovations, herbal cures and traditional medicines . They were non-plussed by these administrative niceties then because " the natives don't mind ". Humbug and hypocricy again.
China is in the WTO, bring valid complaints to the tribunal or else shut up.
Confucius said " It is a poor workman who blames his tools "
Now, you moaners and groaners can put the money where your mouths are. Boycott " made in China " goods and services. That will teach them. It may work .
