Re: Beijing Intellectual Property Court

how can the Beijing Intellectual Property Court even be a thing?

I think you're being a little unfair there. All developing and fast growing economies (since forever) have played fast and loose with other countries' IP (including the land formerly known as the land of the free). Over time these emergent economies start to amass their own stash of home grown IP, and progressively they move towards a system of respect for other people's IP.

In China there isn't a level playing field for IP, and won't be for years to come - on the other hand things are changing slowly, and we might want to be grateful for that.
