I read that some companies are reluctant to use China as a base of operations because they'd have to share their propreitary intellectual rights with Chinese firms. In some industries such as automobiles, China insists that any foreign company must find a local Chinese firm in order to do business and so there would be a transfer of information to these local firms. However, there doesn't seem to be any such reluctance with the clothing industry. Does this mean that there aren't any intellectual or proprietary rights that that clothing companies are trying to protect from copyright infrigement? I'm not talking about counterfeit goods, but about ideas and designs.
