Ripping off IP from the rest of the world, where reward inspires incentive, inspires creativity and invention and innovation, is Standard Daily Practice throughout the CCP dictated country. It's been the same old shyte since 1998, well documented, proven to continue every single day.
What's extraordinary here is apology. Apparently, the Chinese (ironically like Microsoft circa 1994 stealing Apple Quicktime code) are not into international lawsuits.
There are some incredible technos in China. I have some of the gear! But such is communism that it takes considerable breaking of the rules to allow citizens to benefit from their creativity. And even then, the CCP have to play at IRON GRIP and deservedly make purchasers of Chinese products and services paranoid.
Give it up CCP and let China ACTUALLY thrive without your blundering, destructive BS.
