To be a competitor in todays fast moving world companies have two options; depending on which one a they choose will have life or death consequences on them further down the road. But if you are a Chinese supported government organization both roads can lead to the predetermined outcome. We have seen the Chinese “knock offs”, watches, handbags, computers, phones manufactured in China, they are ubiquitous; pure theft of intellectual property to say the least. China first ran with the “knock off” phase then slowly developed the research and design phase. Today their technology is on par with worldwide tech companies, in fact they lead many of the disciplines. For example in biotech, their CRISPR technology is leaps and bounds ahead of ours. But don’t forget they have problems of viruses escaping from research labs.
To gain a foothold in the market the best way is to copy a competitors product is to reverse engineer it, change a logo or simplify the design will give you market credibility. Money starts rolling in until you are stopped either by the law or by a foreign government, but then it is usually too late. Chinese companies know that the runway would take years to enforce. In the mean time they were raping countries for trillions of dollars by selling copy cat products including those with patent transgressions and copyright violations. The world stood by, turned the other cheek and now they are paying for it.
But at the same time, the CCCP had another game plan, enroll their top students at the worlds renown engineering schools, gain technical knowledge that otherwise was unavailable in China. Upon graduation or internship these PHD students were recruited by Chinese counter parts. So the targets or many say plants were aptly positioned, the game plan was rolled out with dispatch and here we are, facing a behemoth competitor that is starting to eat not only our lunch, but the rest of the world.
WATCH OUT AMERICA AND THE WORLD – CHINA WANTS TO OWN YOU.
