Actually a lot of the posters here should be rejoicing. In my experience Chinese youngsters in general are extremely good at selling stuff online, this could be a great boon for American companies/brands as export of American goods and good news for any other country as well.
A lot of young Chinese today are engaged in selling to the ever growing Chinese middle class, and you might just find that export of your product might as well happen to small players as to a few big corporations that won't pay you more that nickel for your product making them the winners not you.
Realize that Chinese youngsters and Chinese in general, no longer want copies, they want the real deal. So why don't you find those old worn jeans, or whatever product you can research your way to, is in demand over there and find yourself a collaboration partner and then start bringing in a new stream of revenue for yourself.
The Chinese are hungry for interesting foreign goods, and no they do generally not use SPAM, I have never ever received a SPAM mail from a company pedding Chinese goods, in fact your fear of SPAM is unfounded if you look at the Chinese online marked and social media usage, you see they don't have to use SPAM, people scour over services like taobao, and use WeChat constantly looking for products they desire and if you have it you're more or less certainly going to sell it money is not a problem in China.
Social media platforms such as WeChat from Tencent that have everything built in, from social networking to shopping modules and online payment processing systems and APPS are far superior in comparison to our traditional western social media / trade platforms.
I think people should stop whimpering about the communist threat, that is so last century thinking and they really should start living in the present, please try to realize this is one world populated with people that more or less all have the same goal - A good prosperous life in peace!
Start collaborating instead of bickering, seriously, I have spent a fair amount in China over the past few years and trust me if market forces are at work at the moment anywhere it is in China, and if you want to tap into the good life, now is your opportunity, that is if you can see through the smoke and mirrors.
And that this hits the news is kind of interesting as the Chinese government despite contrary beliefs, actually encourages private entrepreneurs and have for years done so.
In fact I wish the government where I live would ease restrictions on start-ups as they are in China tax wise, a trusted source non government affiliated business person explained that as a small timer i.e. personal entrepreneur, you don't even need to pay tax of anything till you hit something like a turnover of about 300000 Yuan (roughly 46-47000 US$ in todays value 2016-03-16) and they were free to even start multiple businesses if they were willing to lay down a deposit per business etc.
So stop fearing the Chinese and start collaborating with them, you will find they are more like you than you possibly think.
Grab this opportunity by the horns - It is a chance unlike any you've seen in many years - Seize the moment!
