With the DMCA, the burden of proof is on the alleged infringer to show that pirated content is being used fairly. There are also organizations, such as the Recording Industry Association of America, which represent content authors collectively in court and could potentially make additional profits from copyright infringement lawsuits in addition to royalties. There are DRM software manufacturers, which can only gain from its necessity (except in cases such as Sony-BMG where they went too far).

Though there may be substantial amount information that may defend Microsoft’s legitimacy, the claims against Microsoft and those who are being negatively affected stand to outweigh the positive attributes considerably. The key issue is what should the government do about the monopolizing strategies of Microsoft. The entities that have a stake in the outcomes are Microsoft’s competition like Sun Micro Systems, Real Networks, Netscape and the general public as well as the government. The companies that are competing are affected because they want to get their specific products circulating in the market but are unable to do so because of the monopoly created by Microsoft. With more business competition the general public will benefit because of the increased probability of price wars and more opportunity for critical innovation in the industry.

Many countries do not provide any protection from patent or copyright violations.
Technology is now the foundation to any society and in America; digital products (mp3 files, videos, books, etc.) are protected as intellectual property. Theft of any intellectual property would have similar (and in some cases more severe) consequences as stealing a car or shoplifting, however, some countries that fall behind in the development of intellectual property can easily steal digital products and produce them for a much cheaper and easier rate of production. One such country is China, which has indirectly stolen billions of dollars for the American economy by either replicating or developing products that America invented. America has tried to engage the Chinese to try to stop such theft, but while doing so may have surpassed civil liberties that are constitutional to all American citizens.

It was found that US antidumping cases were often driven by political pressure, national security interests, and historical economic relations.
The US government’s view was that Google entered China by placing move value on making profits than protecting citizens’ right to the freedom of speech. Google wasn’t the only American company in China making large profits, but Google was held to a higher standard because of their stance on doing what is right or as they say “Don’t Be Evil.” However, the US Government was not the only one to have negative feelings about Google in China. Americans were unhappy with Google in China as well. Google has been criticized for censoring its service in China and for digitizing copies of books online. Book publishers have raised their voice
