Is China making a pirated copy of the western world?

(Intellectual property includes copyrights on creative works such as music and software, patents on inventions and formulas, and trademark for logos.) China was the source of two-thirds of all counterfeit goods seized at U.S. ports in 2004.

U.S. and other foreign companies complain they are losing billions of dollars as their ideas and inventions are copied for sale within China and for export across the globe. Those losses undermine innovation and cost jobs here. Some forms of intellectual-property theft _ involving fake car parts, baby food and medicine _ can even cost lives, wherever they are sold
Update 2: They are also claiming to have invented almost everything if their political forums are anything to go by. Here is an example a faked map "proving" China discovered America

"“The Confucius Institute Online is stealing China Expat’s content. That’s right, the Beijing-based institute with millions of dollars of resouces has been taking articles from ChinaExpat.com, an upstart website with no revenue dedicated to promoting Chinese culture and tourism. They have been stealing original writing in its entirety and passing it off as their own original content. In total more than four dozen (!) of our articles appear on their site and I could only find one time that they gave us credit.”

Update 4: el cid, the forged map paper was old but the ink was modern. The map is a fake and shows chinese ambition and dishonesty not history. "However, there remain questions over the authenticity of Liu's map. The carbon dating was only for the paper, not for the ink, or for the time the ink was applied.... show more el cid, the forged map paper was old but the ink was modern. The map is a fake and shows chinese ambition and dishonesty not history.

"However, there remain questions over the authenticity of Liu's map. The carbon dating was only for the paper, not for the ink, or for the time the ink was applied. "Experts cannot identify in which period the ink was put on the map," Liu admitted.

Other experts are less convinced. Geoff Wade, senior research fellow at the National University of Singapore, told China Daily that the map "was a litany of errors, many simplistic." For example, "The representation of China is poor. Why should Chinese cartographers have represented the lands with which they were so familiar so poorly?"

"I am convinced that this map is a 21st-century fake. It was certainly produced by someone educated in simplified characters, meaning since the founding of the People's Republic of China,
Update 5: el cid, just make a note that western science, technology and business can actually see what is going on.

Update 6: I posted a whole string of links from the BBC , Newsweek,Business Week even China Daily but all have been removed. All I can say is do your own research on the high level of corruption and history changing coming from China
