Default The INQ goes on the trail of Chinese pirates

Great first hand report about the availability of illegal copies from software, movies and more

"This Spring Festival is sort of special. Not only is the year of the Golden Pig coming, but the government in Beijing has announced much success in the nationwide drive to end piracy. Computer software piracy, music and video piracy, and copying and selling books and magazines from the west.

Having been to the city three times in the last 15 months, I don't see much change another 15 months later. Unlike Hong Kong, the change was much greater.

Hey, I am going there again in late March (flight confirmed). Although I speak the local language and being Chinese (American), six-foot tall and different clothing don't always help.
