Do not forget that China is a communist government and culture.. And has been since about 1948. So no one left who was raised under a different system of government. Under communism, every thing is owned by "the people." If people can't individually own land or property, how could they possibly own something like an idea? It is a fundamentally incomprehensible concept. So they don't think they are doing something wrong when use someone else's idea, or software, or design. But they have figured out that their foreign customers get all upset when they do re-use their ideas and designs. So the government is making "adjustments" so that they can fit in with the rest of the world, but only recently. Enough off-topic, sorry. --- Graham == On Thu, Feb 22, 2018 at 9:42 PM, Ruslan Nabioullin <rnabioul...@gmail.com> wrote: > On Thu, Feb 22, 2018 at 5:48 PM, djl <d...@montana.com> wrote: > > Fine.
