Haier Integrated Circuit Sued

A senior manager with the Haier Group says that now so-called intellectual propriety protection is a tool for multinational companies to lambaste others in order to retain their technology monopoly. This tool is more lethal than trade barriers and 60 percent of Chinese export companies are suffering this kind of technical barrier set by foreign countries, the manager reveals.
