IP Commission Report: Surprisingly clueful

Scott Bradner | May 31, 2013
In spite of one stunningly dumb idea, report on theft of American intellectual property is generally well done.

I particularly like the discussion in Chapter 7 of the problems in the generally used methods of calculating loss from the illegal copying of software.  

The report is consistent with other recent reports in painting China as the main bad guy in the cyberworld, but also takes time to discuss (in Chapter 9) recent developments in China that give hope for a somewhat improved picture in the future.

Overall, this is a good report, and worth reading.

Disclaimer:  I assume some people at Harvard have read this report, but I have not seen any opinions about it expressed by them or by the university. So the above review is my own.
