China thwarted by copyright?

Copyright China

Solid Oak, developer of the notorious CyberSitter, says it has found code stolen from their own program within the Green Dam Youth Escort filtering software that is being used by Chinese authorities, and is considering filing a lawsuit to halt shipments.

Solid Oak has asked large companies such as HP and Dell to refrain from installing Green Dam; Despite this, around nine million copies of the software have already been shipped.

China's Ministry of Industry and Information Technology has "ordered the problem be fixed," but it's unclear when, or if, that'll happen. There is of course still the irony that Chinese censoring efforts are being halted by copyright infringement laws.

Unfortunately, Chinese copyright/patent infringement is nothing new. China does not recognize any such restrictions and has been steeling patented pharmaceuticals, hardware, and machines for the longest time.  This is the first I have ever heard of an organization attempting to do something about it. This exception seems to be since this specific product is international, making it easy to boycott or block. Interesting article, maybe China will think twice next time.
