USCC 2010 Report Released

2010 Report to [the U.S.] Congress of the U.S.-China Economic and Security Commission (USCC) has been released. The report is 324 pages long and IP Dragon will read those parts relevant to intellectual property in China, including market access, in the coming weeks.

If you cannot wait read the 4 page opening remarks of Chairman Dan Slane and Vice Chairman (why not vice chairperson?) Carolyn Bartholomew on the report which includes information about indigenous innovation and procurement in China without applying the WTO Governement Procurement Agreement (GPA) rules (which is not that strange since its status is observer since February 21, 2002, not party, see here, Hong Kong is party June 19, 1997 and Taiwan July 15, 2009), a striking name for China's approach to internet control as "networked authoritarianism" and its take on the hijacking of U.S. internet traffic.
