China Service And One Tiny Tiny Hotel Comment. Meaning Versus Nothingness.
2012-05-25 19:42:00
This blog has been around for more than six years and during that time we have picked up a number of regular e-mailers. Some of these are people who, for whatever reason, refuse to comment on the blog, even anonymously, preferring to leave their “comments” via email.  Then there are the people who have a regular agenda/theme. There is the person who for years has sent me emails “proving” China’s economy is a bubble that will inevitably pop.  There is the person who thinks China is amoral and that will eventually cause it to rot from inside. This person is constantly sending me emails showing how “bad” the Chinese people are.  On the rare occasions when I respond, I usually do so by pointing out something similar that just happened in the United States. Or I sometimes just say that one can certainly expect a lot of bad apples in a batch of 1.5 billion of them.  I have always thought this person keeps emailing in the hopes that we will eve...

China Film: “There Will Be Culture”
2012-05-25 03:03:00
By: Rogier Creemers The following is a guest post by Rogier Creemers. Rogier is a post-doctoral Research Officer in Oxford University’s Programme in Comparative Media Law and Policy.  Rogier “wrote his Ph.D. thesis on the relationship between media piracy in China, intellectual property law and media regulation, and globalization. His main research interests include the nexus between media policy and political change in China, with a particular focus on the processes of cooptation and confrontation between the vested regime and potential challengers.”  We thought Rogier’s expert take on China’s attempts to export its culture through film would make for an interesting post. So without further ado, here’s Rogier’s post: Amidst the flurry of cultural policy documents being flung at us since last autumn’s Communist Party plenum, a new export guidance catalogue for cultural products and services was published in the beginning of February.

Financing China Movie Co-Productions. Australian Producer Offsets Can Work.
2012-05-21 19:57:00
By: Mathew Alderson In my previous post, Aussiewood Film Finance And China Co-Productions. Ever The Twain Shall Meet?  I explained how a cash rebate equivalent to 40% of feature film production costs is available from the Australian government for films with “significant Australian content” if the producer incurred “qualifying Australian production expenditure” when making the film. This rebate is known as the “Australian producer offset.” In this post, I explain how “official” co-productions between Australia and China, and between Australia and certain other nations, are exempt from some of these requirements, making it easier to access this offset. But first, what is an “official” co-production? For purposes of the Australian producer offset, an official co-production is one made under formal arrangements between Australia and the governments of various countries. These formal arrangements are treaties or memoranda of u...

Using Customs To Protect Your Brand From China Counterfeits
2012-05-18 12:48:00
By: Rachel Buker I just returned from the INTA conference in Washington DC, a gathering of nearly 10,000 intellectual property professionals from around the world.  A number of speakers at the conference emphasized how using customs to seize counterfeit goods can be a very powerful tool for protecting brand-owners from counterfeit goods. The European Court of Justice recently set limitations on the ability of European Union (EU) customs agents to seize counterfeit and pirated goods.  The decision pertained to two joined cases—one case involved a shipment of electric shavers coming from China (with an unknown destination) that allegedly infringed on the design protection of a Philips product.  The other was a shipment of Nokia phones from Hong Kong bound for Columbia.  When Nokia applied for seizure of the phones, the request was denied because the goods were not bound for the EU market, and thus could not be considered counterfeit under EU regulations.   Nokia then brought ...
China/Myanmar Are Incredibly Risky And Difficult. So Run, Don’t Walk To B
2012-05-17 12:48:00
During my recent Los Angeles trip, I met with the person tasked with taking his company’s service business into China.  For about an hour we two talked of pretty much nothing but the difficulties he and his company would face.  Being the lawyer that I am, I am not sure I talked of anything other than problems and risks. Finally, the putative China head remarked, “I know, everybody is telling us we are crazy for even trying to do business in China.”  I replied, “Wait a second.  I never for a moment told you not to go into China. In fact, I am of the view that you have to go into China. Within about five years, businesses like yours will be making a fortune in China and if you don’t go now, you will have almost no chance of being one of them.” I then told him of my disappointment with American wineries.  More than five years ago, at least a handful of good-sized wineries came to us with plans for going into China, but all of them backed out whe...
Selling Your Product Into China. What You Need To Know.
2012-05-16 16:30:00
ABC News is pushing (I received two different emails from ABC on it) a Diane Sawyer/ABC News clip entitled, “‘Made in America’ Products Selling in China.” Though it is the proverbial 3.28 minute puff piece, it is right on the big picture. There are huge opportunities to sell American product and American products are viewed very highly in China. It starts out noting how “the Chinese spent $104 billion in U.S. exports in the last year — up 542 percent from 10 years ago.”  For more on how China has been greatly increasing its purchases of American goods, check out Selling Into China: The New Wave.  The clip then highlights a number of large and small U.S. businesses that are either trying to sell into China or have succeeded in doing so. Everyone is happy, everyone is at least a little bit jingoistic, and everything looks as easy as simply putting your product on the net and waiting for the hordes of Chinese consumers to come to you. Of cour...

Aussiewood Film Finance And China Co-Productions. Ever The Twain Shall Mee
2012-05-16 00:34:00
By:  Mathew Alderson During the Beijing International Film Festival last month, several Hollywood executives and film producers expressed interest in the Australian producer offset and asked me whether their films might qualify for it. Though these sorts of inquiries tend to arise in connection with official Chinese co-productions, they also come up in connection with Hollywood projects with no immediate China connection. In this post I will look at the Australian producer offset generally. There are significant exceptions to the rules in the case of an official Chinese co-production so I will look at the producer offset from the standpoint of an official Chinese co-production in a subsequent post. Under the Australian producer offset, 40% of the production costs of certain feature films can be recovered by the producer, in cash, from the Australian Taxation Office. The producer offset is claimed in the production company’s annual tax return filed in Australia for the year in...

Dalai Lama: China may have plotted to poison me
2012-05-13 17:31:00
LONDON (Reuters) - Tibet's Buddhist leader, the Dalai Lama, fears China may have plotted to kill him by training female agents with poison in their hair and on their clothing, he told Britain's Sunday Telegraph newspaper. China has ruled Tibet since 1950, and the Chinese government has repeatedly accused exiled Tibetans, including the Dalai Lama, of stoking dissent against its rule. The spiritual leader fled to India in 1959 after a failed uprising. Last year he was warned that Chinese agents had trained Tibetan women to kill him, the Sunday Telegraph reported. ...
Blind China activist Chen says arrested nephew a scapegoat

BEIJING (Reuters) - Blind Chinese rights activist Chen Guangcheng said on Sunday that a nephew, arrested on charges of attempted murder, was the victim of vengeance by officials incensed at Chen's escape, which cast a global spotlight on his 19 months in house arrest. Chen confirmed reports that his nephew Chen Kegui was arrested on charges of attempted homicide over a confrontation that erupted after officials in their home village found Chen Guangcheng had escaped, defeating a seemingly impenetrable barrier of guards, video surveillance and walls. ...
China Luxury Spending Seminar. New York City On May 16, 2012.
2012-05-13 06:12:00
Just got back from Los Angeles, where I met with long-time China hands, Sage Brennan and Renee Hartmann.  Since returning to the United States, Sage and Renee have formed China Luxury Advisors, a consultancy focused on helping luxury goods companies market to Chinese consumers both within and outside China. These days its difficult to find any consumer brand that is not at least considering the potential to sell to Chinese consumers — whether by entering the China market or by targeting the hordes of wealthy Chinese shopping and traveling overseas. In the luxury industry, interest is even stronger. One need only walk down 5th Avenue or Rodeo Drive (or Beverly Drive, for that matter, which is where I met Sage and Renee for coffee) to notice huge numbers of Chinese shoppers and Mandarin speaking sales associates in the boutiques to greet them.  Since Sage and Renee tell me that more than 50% of Chinese luxury purchases are being made abroad, these shops are getting it right.

How To Save Face In China. The Book.
2012-05-11 19:45:00
Unless you have a perfect mastery of Chinese language, symbolism, and social nuances (and who even has that of their own country, anyway?), consider picking up a copy of Anne-Laure Monfret’s Saving Face in China, a practical book aimed at aiding you in making a decent impression on your Chinese business contacts. Monfret is a French management and HR specialist who spent eight years in China. Her book addresses the trickiest areas of Chinese culture through thoughtful explanations and first-hand stories.  As she illustrates, it takes a whole lot more than common courtesy to navigate Chinese business meals, deals, and conflicts, all of which are fraught with complex hierarchies and expectations.  Alternating between big-picture concepts (e.g., western versus Chinese notions of “efficiency”) and concrete do’s and don’ts (do give a nice bottle of cognac as a gift, but never, ever give a clock), the book is a crash course in avoiding major social gaffes. Monfret concedes (an...
