Earthquakes and Complex Feelings toward Japan
However, China’s public opinion doesn’t always match the government’s magnanimity, and there is a debate, online and off, about how China should react to the news of Japan’s disaster. There are those who say Japan got what it deserved and cite the atrocities committed against China in World War II, and saw the earthquake as something to be celebrated, but most people feel that at this moment of great tragedy, we should put history aside and reach out to the Japanese people.

Even though the anti-Japanese opinion often makes the loudest noise online and the best story (as in the demonstrations against Japan in 2005) I am glad to see most people taking a different and more compassionate view.  But I am also not surprised that this debate occurs in China today, we have such complicated feelings and opinions regarding Japan.

Schadenfreude and Sympathy in Shanghai
Indeed, as some began to point out on local and international microblogging platforms late in the day, natural disasters -- whether in China or elsewhere -- are politically sensitive events from the perspective of the leadership. This one, like Wenchuan, is increasingly becoming so.

China Could Game the U.S. in Intellectual Property
Patents will neither make China more innovative nor will they benefit the global economy. A vast number of China’s academic papers are plagiarized or irrelevant; its government-sponsored patents will be similarly tainted. In contrast to the tiny proportion of academic papers that serve to expand the world’s knowledge base, however, Chinese patents will serve as land mines for foreign businesses. They will allow China to demand license fees from companies that do business there or to shut them out entirely.

Online copyright crackdown: Where did all my favorite American shows go? - Shanghaiist
Back in November 2010, the government said it would ban any form of trading and supplying of unauthorized foreign TV shows. We heard that, said "Yeah, okay" and then went back to watching the new season of Mad Men on Tudou.com because well, if it was gonna be anything like the smoking ban, then we'd have nothing to worry about, right?
