China: Universities fail review

The AngryChineseBlogger takes a very close look at a recently-released report which gives a very poor rating of the protection of intellectual property rights in four of China's top ten universities, adds an analysis of fiscal, socio-cultural and legal factors which might contribute to the problem, and ends with a prediction of how this report is most likely to be viewed within China:

“While a great many, some would argue most, Chinese universities commit a broad range of IPR violations on a regular basis, and do little or nothing to keep this fact a secret, the way in which the five institutes were named by the IIPA, and the public highlighting of their transgressions, remains an extreme loss of face.”
