    I own a Chinese Law Firm, I call "Nonsense" on all your points - Vs - myth and lore B/S on the Internet that you've read that has led you to many assumptions over facts.

    PM me anytime if you need advise.

    PS: "The Chinese"? I just looked outside my window, I see some guys drinking tea, a mother walking her toddler, a guy cutting some branches from a tree, but can't see anyone "flagrantly copying" anything. In fact in my 14 years here, I have never seen anyone I have been personally associated with, including a good number of factories, copying anything.

    Did you actually mean to say that some companies in China sometimes copy?

    PPS: Every single IPR Infringement Case my Law Firm has been involved in has been successful.


    Often if it's a continued businesses operation, the Patent can be reapplied for successfully, or an identifying iconic design feature such as a Jeep grille or Rolls Royce grille, Porsche 911 roofline for example, are quite easy to protect long term. Mercedes Benz recently had a replica of their famous 1955 300SL Gullwing sports car seized and destroyed in Germany on a heritage foundation.

    They do copy. They have just gotten better at ignoring, at least US law, to the point we have given up as consumers and accept it to keep cheap goods coming in. Because of this leverage the rights to these goods here drop to the point that they end up being bought cheap, then legitimizing what was not. At lest on the shelves in the US that has happened. I know some people in the Chinese helicopter industry and they are 50/50 on that strategy and will admit it if not in their country.

    I think your first challenge is going to be proving you own the Volmer copyrights, which is going to rather harder with a last name that is not Volmer.

    Most have moved to selling kits with limited or no plans to copy.
