Yes, no foreign country should be permitted to use coercion, cooperative ventures, academic assignments, access to their markets, creation of academic institutes nor other means to steal intellectual property from the United States. China has been very good at leveraging all of the above in successful efforts to acquire critically useful technologies to support its economic expanse and now, its expanded military capabilities. I fear that they are already international leaders in some areas, Their covert and cyber efforts are very sophisticated. Our preoccupation with military conflicts meant that few folks were watching the developments over the past 40 years, despite warnings particularly from the cyber warfare folks. I am not sure that this legislation will help much other than going on record that we 'noticed' and are watching.
