The article addresses the problem associated with the growing counterfeit business in China. China's counterfeit business contributes to the $750 billion trade in dodgy goods; about 22% of 8800 products sampled recently in China, including pharmaceuticals and pesticides did not conform to national standards. It is perhaps as well for the chemical businesses in the rest of the world that this effort is contained in China, and is not spent on producing original work.
