From almost the beginning of recorded history, China has served as a provider of desired goods. Marco Polo traveled the world to bring back goods made in the Orient. Today, China’s economy has grown to include the manufacture of many different products, including clothing, purses, software, computers, and movies. While just as desired as the goods of Marco Polo’s day, these modern goods often are not the legitimate product of the original source; instead, these are goods that are copied, reverse engineered and-with limited investment and no payment to the creator-sold for a negligible price to China’s 1.3 billion citizens and also exported in massive quantities to many, many other countries, including America.
