I will admit that it it is easy to find DVDs there, but the big software markets have been closed.  Microsoft has a huge office building in Beijing.  Remember that China is developing some intellectual capital of their own now, so they have a reason to start protecting it.

The company that sells the highest percentage of Windows licenses on their PCs is actually a Chinese company.

Wow, this is from the same country that not too long ago publicly denied the authenticity of any patents issued anywhere in the world. They basically said they don't care about patents. It wont be long now, soon China will be looked upon as a western nation kinda like Japan is.

 China is absolutely riddled with corrupt officals, businessmen, and police. The only people they will go after are the ones that cannot bribe enough or are in competition to a well placed communist party member. Then it's off with their heads!

Well good luck to them with that. China's like, the pirating capital of the world.

Considering China executes 7000+ people a year, I'm sure lynching a few pirates won't make them sweat.

....they can do all they want and it won't make but the slightest dent in what's going on.  It would take a complete culture mindset change.
