It will never stop as long as we still have leftists in the government.

China will always be ahead because they don't have to feed millions dependent on welfare gibs and a fuck ton of unproductive inferior genetic stocks shitkins mulattos and leftist soy genderfluid millennials. How much money we spend on chimp welfare in PRISON???? China just executes and be efficient.

China is ahead because they are conservatives. IF there are no liberals in America then America will be ahead or equal. It's fucking simple. America was great before cultural marxism started. Leftists are a burden to our society and are dragging everybody down.

If China has treasonous "democrat"-like party and a fuckton of "feels" #metoo leftists they will be the one in trade deficit.

The Chinese really don't seem to get the concept of IP. Might help explain how such a populous, industrious nation has performed quite poorly in terms of innovation.

The concept of IP is largely trash. The laws here are a mired mess. I wouldn't trust any numbers of IP theft because they are the same people that equate every pirated copy downloaded as a lost sale.

You mean America right? Because China is far more innovative than the United States these days. Americans spend more time suing everyone for making something that 'looks a little bit like' something they made than they do making anything better.

America may lead the world in patents, but 99% percent of it is useless, derivative crap designed just to give the patent holder a legal reason to sue their competitors.

The Chinese don't "get" IP because they are too busy innovating instead of being loser fucks that make a business out of suing everyone and crying like pathetic little pussies about copyright and 'IP' - like the flaming garbage dump known as America.

So what great innovations have emerged from China this past century, and how does this compare to the US? Theyre good at copying things, they're getting better now at developing, but considering their numbers they should have achieved more.

Patents have to be publicly recored, easy to steal chemical and code patents.

Also Copyright is published.

I get your point, but the chinks do indeed steal.

Chinese even like to eat cute live infant Rats :

I wonder who is tracking that cost to our economy?

I'm just going to point out here: "IP" is not property, nobody owns ideas - it's just the greedy and lazy American corporatist way of using the force of government to generate a monopoly so they don't have to keep improving / developing their products / designs.

Not a fan of China, but the minute someone starts complaining about 'intellectual property' as if they have the 'right' to own ideas, they are exposing themselves as a piece of sh*t with nothing to offer the free market that needs to force people to buy their product by eliminating all their competitors at the point of a government controlled gun.

"Let's remember: We buy five times more goods than they buy from us,” Navarro said. "They have a lot more to lose in any escalation of this matter."

Excluding the lack of all those products for US consumers that they currently rely on Chinese producers for? Beware simplistic solutions to complex problems; if a problem takes decades to manifest it won't be resolved with single pen strokes.

We are not in a trade war with China, that war was lost many years ago by the foolish, or incompetent, people who represented the U.S. Now we have a Trade Deficit of $500 Billion a year, with Intellectual Property Theft of another $300 Billion. We cannot let this continue! -- https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/981492087328792577

Well, expect IP theft to go up even more with a trade war happening.
