This week two days of hearings at the U.S. ITC (International Trade Commission) are scheduled on the issue of China and copyright law. The panel is going to hear from the software industry.
The panel is reported to have representatives of the BSA (Business Software Alliance),
SIIA (Software and Information Industry Association) and the ITIC (Information Technology Industry Council), all intending to be present. As for the first two, they are considered major anti-piracy industry outfits, while the ITIC is known for making reform of indigenous innovation policy of China a signature issue. The latter tended to promote the commercialization of local technology over imports from abroad.
The Commission’s event lasting 2 days is just a part of a mission of revealing facts that the Senate Finance Committee requested the trade panel to initiate. It filed the U.S. ITC a letter at the end of this past April, asking to carry two investigations: first on the issue of the scale of copyright infringement occurring in China and the second on the level of economic impact of indigenous innovation policies China has applied to U.S. companies. To be exact, the committee asked for analyzing the scope of impact that Chinese policies would have both on American jobs and on the wider economy.
The U.S. ITR announced in response that it has decided to present two reports to the Senate Finance Committee. The first one is to be finished by the end of this November and will provide the overall description of intellectual property infringement in China and propositions of an analytical basis for evaluating the economic impact the China’s policies have on the U.S., the list including the policies favoring the creation of advantageous conditions on the market for locally produced technology.
However, all the participants in the copyright debate intend to use absolutely different methods to estimate the rate of economic impact of piracy and other intellectual property issues, especially regarding implementing the quantitative analysis to determine the numbers of lost jobs.
The second report is promised to be completed by May next year and will show the indexes, depending on the basis considered in the first report, alongside with estimations of lost jobs, sales, and profits due to China's copyright policies.
