### How do you win? Wait. Just wait until the Chinese are too rich to
be interested in making the cheap crap and will try to make real money
on more advanced stuff that you can't mooch off other people. They
will have to rely on their own companies to actually innovate, and
presto, strong IP protection will be the top slogan in the rewritten
Little Red Book. You can't outcompete people who innovate unless you
innovate, too, and you can't innovate without paying inventors. It's
as simple as that.
