Westerners are so fucking cucked by property rights. The trade tariffs on China have, actually, seen as a net negative by the american busniess community because even if they were loosing money via IP theft now they are about to get hit hard by China countering with their own tariffs. It was largely seen just as a part of doing business.

Intellectual property is only necessary under capitalism

So bitch about China "stealing" your shit all you want, America. (You too Europe.) Not only is it going to bite the United States in the ass its unnecessary cuckoldry.

You, literally, cannot refute this.

I think what you really mean is that you need it to slow-down capitalism's death spiral. It is not integral to capitalism in itself in fact there are many examples that show that capitalism can do quite well without it but as you point out it deprives owners of capital from monopolies they've gotten from development and undoing such things may lead to higher growth and lower-costs in the short-run but a more rapid disintegration in the long-run.

Regardless, the US has the best "AI" but it's kept secret because the NSA owns it. It's covered in their black budget, the one normal people aren't allowed to see. As for "robots", that meme was done better by Japan decades ago but even then America is #1, evidenced by the rapidly increasing use of self-driving farm tractors and mining equipment.

What I'm thinking of is pure, basic research especially biomedical research. Here America is the best, but doing any sort of privately funded research is a huge pain in the ass and logjams the development of lifesaving medicine and equipment. Everything is just incredibly slow, fraught with backroom deals between lawyers. The few publicly funded ventures have to whore themselves out for grant money.

Back in March 2015, the CIA chief began setting up a new office, the Directorate of Digital Innovation, to integrate the latest tech into the agency's data-gathering workflow along with boosting the country's cyber defense. According to its director, the department has helped the CIA as a whole improve its "anticipatory intelligence." Speaking at the Next Tech event yesterday, Deputy Director for Digital Innovation Andrew Hallman noted that, in some instances, they've been able to forecast social unrest and societal instability in other countries by as much as three to five days out.

No and the lack of proof is a deliberate decision on part of the NSA. Hype up China's "supercomputing" abilities so they can get more money. The AF and Navy do it vis-a-vis Chinese missiles to justify things like the Hypersonic Technology Vehicle program.

But more specifically, the NSA started building this during the Bush years and they clearly have something very special inside it. Something special enough to warrant it's own site rather than being an annex of one of the many nearby airbases. It's probably at least one, if not multiple, specially-built supercomputers. Not just a parallel system of GPUs like most supercomputers are, but something 100% built from the ground up (circuits themselves) to scan the Internet for leaked government documents, CP, and nudes of the NSA director's ex girlfriends.

There's no historicity behind the claim, 'intellectual property', as such, has only existed within the capitalist environs for a short period - and is markedly a product of the modern age of global trade. Supposing that, then, the absence of the conception is a sign of non-valence from capitalist exchange is simply not true, if judged on its own merit. The point of my response, poorly worded the first one was - the implication is not that there can exist a radical or emancipatory degree of 'intellectual property' but much rather that, amongst the cyclical trends of commodity and reproduction of capital, this protection of non-'real' capital and its catalysts by law has neither been a constant nor really even a part of many developing economies.

I really do recommend for any anons to read the Shaikh paper linked, it's an excellent purview of the state of modern trends in comparative trade, and examines just exactly the antinomies of the market capitalist system. Also breaks a number of myths about the process of the economy in both leftist and rightist spheres, to the benefit of the former and derelict the latter.

Owen Stewart
Owen Stewart

But that's exactly the reason why it is correct; we don't live in the early days of capitalism when people were, mostly, producing and trading for an immediate use; the material conditions of capitalism have shifted from a more local to a more. Global financial and industrial market.

The fact that China can produce enmass replicated products that are enough to drive global profits down billions is an ode to why capitalism after the Industrial revolution requires IP because any and all people can get into any and all markets and with nothing to offset this tendency, like many contradictions of capitalism, this will lead to the breaking down of the system itself.

All the finger-pointing on China really ignores the bigger picture.

Nathaniel Hall

The point is not that we've left to pasture the concept of defensive capital to the past - as even that reading would condemn China to merely acting as a proto-capitalist economy. That is egregiously wrong.

What is made clear is that, being that capital has no need of intellectual property to propagate itself, not a tendency towards state dictum to secure it, but rather the opposite. The global market has instead opted towards two separate spheres of market exchange: Comparative and defensive, existing in symbiotic tandem. China is merely the source of an exponential growth in capital at productive rates that drive down SNLT, all the modern rate of development to meet potential standards requiring the state meter of trade terms and currency value. Their productive capacity even farther exceeds its long term predictions, in that its modern index for property and construction development (a critical piece of determining economic growth, using aggregate) no more reproduces income or wealth, the same antagonism existing within western economies.

If there is any particular point to make about the excesses of the productive economy, its that China is incredibly unstable and is precisely wholly reliant on the same global comparative trade that we spit at.

IP, as contradiction
If we go by the previously understood development of history, this very process of out of market replication would eventually necessitate its own solution - as it did in the west. However, that this could continue to exist and function in the modern global exchange is no accident. And as it did in the west, the shift from market capacity to state defined contours will not destroy capitalism - quite to the contrary, the dual existence of the market for exchange has been a major boon to the process of the reproduction of capital - It has weakened the power of the US-dollar based fiat currency, to the service of simply integrated a new market (China//Far East); the state of China has been able to, with great efficacy, defend and develop productive capacity at marginal cost, further stratifying global production but also fully ingratiating itself to its processes; nations such as the US can more easily regulate their economy, relying now on the massive market capabilities of scaling virtual and digital capital.

If the point was to be, profits derived have been displaced - yes, absolutely. But the distinction between state-contoured markets and the state-contoured defense of IP is a purely capitalist question, the platitudes of the CCP and their clarion call of a """modern, pragmatic socialism""" never enter into the equation

Oliver King
Oliver King

So what are you even getting at?

How does any of this purpose that IP isn't needed under capitalism? Which was my point in the first place.

The solutions to the dialectical enviablity of capitalism do not necessitate they will come from with in the system itself.

Mason Lopez
Mason Lopez

The point is that the lack of IP protections in China isn't damaging the capitalist framework at all - it is actively working within it. So, that, plus the historicity of the matter show that IP is hardly a static feature of capitalism; capital can function and precipitate itself with or without it.
dialectical inevitability, the Chinese system as non-valent
All that which supposes and values a group, equally en-values that which is removed from the group. That is a base philosophical assumption of Marxian thought. This would assume, as I did above briefly, that we are dealing with China as an 'excluded' party to global capital exchange. But, as I said above, this framework does not work. China is fully ensconced within the antinomies of capital, they are most definitely not the unknown variable. As to the inevitability, given that a Marxist philosophy is neither essentialist nor monistic in character - I'd caution against reliance on some determined eventuality, as it simply requires dropping all Marxist pretenses in favor of some deformed and debilitated 'socialism'
quite similar to the """socialism""" of China ;DDD

In this day and age it cannot. China broke preexisting IP laws that doesn't mean China has no IP laws on the firms with in it.

And you can repeat over and over again that it isn't effecting anything but every economist I've heard speaking in the last three days disagrees. Billions of dollars is not a small chunk of change.

Again, IP might not have to exist in your perfect libertarian utopia back in the 18th century but it absolutely must under moder day industrial capitalism.

<Furthermore

I never said that China wasn't part of the equation, I am well aware of this, but the CPC in my opinion is still acting in the will of the people; existing in a framework of privatization under a heavily nationalized economy and that is the case.
