The great firewall of China is a manifestation of the oppressive regime that denies the Chinese people their basic rights to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. The recent action taken by Google to leave China is a move in the right direction. However, Google, like other U.S firms in China, played a deceitful role in abetting the injustice perpetrated by the Chinese government. Google as a company enjoyed the rights guaranteed by the U.S constitution, while they helped an oppressive regime deny it to billions of citizens. Furthermore, abetting an oppressive regime suppress and subjugate its citizens is unethical from any moral standpoint.
This could only take place with a highly-unlikely radical change in the political structure of China, but to already have a solid user base leading into that situation would be highly advantageous. The arguments against entering into business with China are more complicated. China is a highly repressive Communist regime that has been accused of numerous human rights violations. The recent liberalization of their economic system has made doing business with this giant a "necessary evil" for many businesses around the world. They must adhere to rules that their home nations would find offensive and oppressive.
Most of these rights are either neglected or repressed (Bradsher, 2009). The Chinese government needs to omit corruption and make longer strides in their attempt to provide better rights for their citizens. Chinese citizens are becoming more aware of human right abuses, and the People's Republic of China can only prolong the issue for so much longer. A major cause for the insufficient human rights that structures China's society is their incompetent judicial system. Lying within their system of justice is a dense proportion of corruption.

Countries have been taking advantage of our trade policies. Foreign countries can sell their products in the U.S. with no problem. On the other hand, U.S. companies have to jump through hoops to sell products in foreign countries. We have lost millions of jobs to China and Mexico because of this. Trump will use his negotiating power to make trade fair and to get manufacturing jobs back to the U.S. China also counterfeits a lot of our goods and steals our trade secrets by hacking companies.
The Software Piracy Problem in China 1. The truth: Software piracy at issue in China. Surprisingly, software counterfeiting has such a profitable global market that “organized criminal groups using the proceeds from software counterfeiting to pay for terrorist operations overseas”, according to Brad Smith, Microsoft general counsel international.  Even though most people nowadays are aware of pirated software either from various news medium, or by seeing illegal software copies distributed among friends or students in their personal PCs, it would still be a shocking fact that, in the year 2000, software companies estimated that they lost $12 billion in revenue because of counterfeiting. That's 15% of the industry's $80 billion in worldwide sales.
