IP theft

I saw a glimpse of this yesterday, and my colleague Adam Supernant of PassageMaker sent me the full news story which can be viewed here

I think the story speaks for itself, but this just helps further the argument from Western businesses about IP theft in China (especially when it is this obvious!).  When even the ‘powers that be’ get caught taking IP (and what’s worse, passing it off as credible news), it’s clearly of big concern.

Do yourself a favor folks, produce very detailed contracts, hire people to investigate companies (CBI Consulting) and/or verify their capabilities (AQF).  If Maverick and Goose aren’t safe from IP theft, what makes you think that your product is so special to a Chinese supplier?
