Yes, and that was my point. I'm sorry if I wrote too much and perhaps hid that I think exactly as much.
We almost completely agree, except that it seems to me you overstate (or over-imply) the current state of Chinese culture and society with respect to IP. IP and kin are growing stronger in the Chinese world alongside individualism and the increasing appetite for personal wealth. I call it the new Opium War, only this time, the dealers are hooked, too.
I'll fight to move "The American Dream" away from individualism, as the world loses sleep and its mind trying to achieve it.
