‘stolen from the United States …desperate to make a buck’
But the technologies these multinationals are taking to China and elsewhere often are not theirs. They stole them from their small American competitors which our patent system now permits. The collapse of our patent system was engineered by many of the same large multinationals. If we stop the theft here, it cannot get there. It is not only a sizeable leak of technology via theft, but also of American jobs. When large multinationals can’t export jobs they import workers who displace Americans.
The problem is our patent system now permits and even encourages theft of our inventions. We must restore our patent system. Only then can we hope to seal our borders from the predations of multinationals and their offshore partners in crime. Trying to persuade large multinationals to act ethically by discourse alone is unlikely to be productive, but jail time for their theft of our inventions will. After all, shouldn’t theft be punished and shouldn’t grand theft be punished on a grand scale? Their only motivation is profit. To that end they have no scruples, no ethics. Often great heft comes from grand theft.
