Open source (Re: China already has one...)

It is a fascinating question how will they treat open source code. These typically contain contributions from various countries (for example, the Linux kernel started in Finland, but by now, most of it consists of contributions written elsewhere, China included!).

On the other hand, by its nature open source code can be inspected and modified in China, so they can have control over it in much the same way as Made In China code.
