Liam Casey in China

James Fallows congratulates Liam Casey on his winning of the Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year award. Casey was featured in the recent China special edition of the Atlantic Monthly. Fallows:

Casey informs me that in the last day or two he has received a number of congratulatory messages from contractors and business associates. These are not just about the august E&Y award but also about a long, detailed report on Casey’s company and the larger Shenzhen economy, which has just appeared in the local Guangzhou newspaper. It’s all in Chinese; it is illustrated with elegant photos by Michael Christopher Brown; in fact it is written by me; and it is a word-for-word translation of our original article. China’ cavalier approach to copyright and the whole notion of intellectual property: this time it’s personal.**
