This case goes back a few years. Some activist types in New York filed a federal suit against Baidu because their propaganda political speech did not pop up in search results. Claimants said that Baidu had violated their right to free speech. At the time, I responded with a rant, “Baidu vs. NYC Dissiden......

It’s always difficult for me to find something interesting to say about the American Chamber of Commerce’s annual China business survey. The content itself is often of marginal value, with only a couple significant trends hiding away down in the data to be ignored by the mainstream press. Speaking of which, the dom......

The Chinese are none too pleased that Microsoft will be retiring XP next month, and the bitching and moaning has been fairly loud. But while it is true that in a sense, Microsoft will be leaving a large percentage of its PRC user base in the lurch, I would argue that the complaints have been hyperbolic and unfair. ......

Chinese internet users on Monday accused the United States of double standards after Washington condemned a deadly knife attack in southwest China but refrained from calling it a terrorist incident. (SCMP) The China Hearsay verdict is . . . guilty! Lots of double-standarding going on with this one, ......

Lots of chatter on the Interwebs about the possibility of a cross-border capital transaction tax in China (aka Tobin Tax – you remember this from first-year Macroecon) after some verbal musings on the topic from Yi Gang, head of the State Administration of Foreign Exchange and vice-gov of the PBOC. The Telegraph, be......

Happy New Year, everyone. Moving into 2014, I think we have a much better idea about what is going on in the world of IT security and government skullduggery than we did this time last year, thanks to ex-contractor Edward Snowden, grudging investigative reporting and even more reluctant U.S. government oversight. ......

Merry Christmas everyone! This is one of my favorite “holidays.” I put that in quotes because I always work on the 25th, so it is technically not a holiday for me. However, I love it when things slow down and I can catch up on all the work that has piled up over the past weeks heading into the end of the year. I’v......

Now that we’re sliding into the cold and flu season, a quick post on medicine seems entirely warranted. I’ll start off with a personal anecdote. The other morning, I woke up with a headache. The heat has been on for only a few weeks, so my rapidly-aging body is still adjusting to the suddenly desiccated environment......

You might have read headlines saying that Burberry had lost its trademark rights in China. Not quite. Yes, it is embroiled in a complicated, but familiar, trademark dispute with a competitor, but it’s a bit early to close the book on this one. The backstory here is that Burberry has been fighting with a Taiwanese......

A lot of folks are talking about the spectacle of expat investigators Peter Humphrey and Yu Yinzeng, who have been caught up in the GSK bribery scandal: On Tuesday, the couple appeared on China’s central broadcaster CNTV handcuffed and wearing orange prison vests, their faces blurred, admitting to “......

I’m sorry, but this is the big China scandal of the week, an accusation that a big investment bank hired family members of the rich and powerful? Seriously, is this some sort of journalistic practical joke from The Onion? I report, you decide (if this is silly): [T]he Securities and Exchange ......

Until now I haven’t written anything on the corruption scandal rocking pharma giant GlaxoSmithKline, partially due to other commitments but also because I didn’t really see an interesting angle. Let’s face it, this is not the first corruption story to hit the China foreign investment community, and it will not be ......

A strange funk seems to have descended on the English-language China Blogosphere, or at least those blogs that I usually follow (i.e., the ones focusing more on news, business, politics, economics and law). Maybe it’s something to do with the air quality here in Beijing, which is no doubt simultaneously making us le......

If you’re an environmentalist and into renewable energy, you might want to sit out this discussion about IP theft allegedly perpetrated by China’s wind turbine behemoth Sinovel. This story hits on some familiar themes, including misappropriation of U.S. IP by a Chinese company, tough competition in the clean energy......

To be clear, it’s not so much the lawyers who are cheap, just legal fees, at least compared to the U.S. and EU. This is the topic of “Asia’s Low Legal Stakes,” a recent article in The Asian Lawyer. Now wait, I know what you’re thinking. During this busy time of the year (for me), I’m barely managing to ban......

The most recent blah blah blah about NSA whistleblower Eddie Snowden, now running about somewhere in Hong Kong (I’m guessing Lamma Island, with all the other hippies), is that he may defect to the PRC with all his ill-gotten intelligence booty. To which I question: with the Cold War decades behind us, what does it m......

I missed quite a few good China stories during my trip to India, but this proposed takeover of Smithfield Foods by Chinese meat powerhouse Shuanghui (also trades under the oleaginous name Shineway) is probably the most important one in the cross-border biz world. This deal will be valued at $4.7 billion, making it #1......

I’m not so sure about that, but here’s an update: The U.S. Public Company Accounting Oversight Board announced a deal Friday with Chinese regulators to access documents held by Chinese auditors, defusing but not fully resolving serious disputes with China. The Memorandum of Understanding with the C......

You recall the fun and games when the Chinese media went after Apple as part of the Consumer Day “celebrations,” right? CCTV led the charge, followed by various Op/Eds and in-depth reporting on the U.S. MNC’s product warranty policy. Whether Apple was in violation of the law or not, it certainly was slammed upside......
