Rory McGreal brings to our attention a new report "Theft of American Intellectual Property," the contents of which are as baldly overstated as the title suggests. It is authored by hitherto unknown group called the National Bureau of Asian Research and includes on its commission the president and CEO of the Council on Competitiveness - these are of course empty titles that can be given to any collection of staff writers to give them an air of gravitas. McGreal writes in an email, "If anyone had doubts about the need for OER, this report should help put discussion about sustainability and other OER problems in perspective."
