More or less true.>Does business in China
>Expects not to have his IP stolen
Idiots get what they deserve. No pity at all.
But there is a lot more to this story that unless you actually have done some sort of investment into that accused country.
As stated before I have done business in the Pacific Rim and you are do damned right about IP theft.
And if you can get around that actual problem there is the problem of companies doing the "THIRD SHIFT" on you. which means they make overruns on your product that you paid for and they sell it on the shadow market or just be blatant and Alibaba/Amazon it.
It always comes down to this. And there are not exceptions to this rule which is....
CHINA EATS EVERYTHING...
In my case of recent situation (over 4 years ago) was a simple gaming product that several businesses over there started jerking me around about price and turn out.
Unfortunately for them I had several years of working in a printing company in my youth to fucking know how much time it takes for set up and turn out.
Something was not right with the pricing. They were trying to do a Third shift on me. So with my contacts I told them to just fuck off I went in house to create product instead. The price for prepress work and post production work AND time made up for how cheap the gaming components were going to be made.
