    The decision is probably not unrelated to the current trade dispute between the US and China, in which Chinese company's abuse of intellectual property is a key issue for the Americans.

    An engineering firm I knew spent $300,000 in Asian courts in the 1980's trying to protect their patents. Blatant disregard of the patent. Straight copies being sold. The result? Owner told me he might as well have spent the dough on beer, girls, and sports cars. White face round eyes don't get good results in Asian courts. After that he no longer patented his developments/inventions as patenting only put the idea out in public. Keep it to yourself, he said.

    I think that it depends where you're talking about - it's not all countries in Asia, and China's long been notorious for not enforcing IP. Colleagues of mine based in Japan and Hong Kong spent a lot of their time enforcing IP in the region for foreign companies. And being Caucasian or European wasn't really the issue, since a lot of the IP being stolen, and which they were enforcing their clients' rights to, belonged to and was being stolen from Japanese companies.

    Edit: as one example, there's some fairly egregious examples of theft of Japanese IP running around Melbourne at the moment ...
