,----[ Quote ]
| The U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee on 
| Thursday voted to extend the controversial 
| Patriot Act, an antiterrorism law passed 
| shortly after the Sept. 11 terrorist 
| attacks on the U.S.
| Supporters of the Patriot Act say it gives 
| law enforcement important powers to track 
| down and investigate terrorists. Without 
| the Patriot Act, U.S. law enforcement 
| efforts to find terrorists would be 
| significantly harmed, members of former 
| President George Bush's administration 
| argued.



Careful What You Ask For: China's Patent System Causing Trouble

,----[ Quote ]
| All those foreign nations who kept pushing China to build up its own patent
| system and learn to "respect intellectual property" may soon be regretting
| that, as they're suddenly blocked out of the Chinese market by Chinese firms
| who fast-tracked cheap utility patents themselves with little to no review.
| Be careful what you wish for.


Beijing ruling shows why foreign companies need a patent strategy for China

,----[ Quote ]
| When France's Schneider Electric faced a patent battle in a Chinese court
| recently it had reason to feel confident. It thought it had a solid prior art
| case for invalidating the patent being used against it by Chinese firm Chint,
| and foreign companies win 95% of patent cases in the Chinese courts.
