In an article in Caixin, George Washington University Law Professor Donald Clarke looks at the contractual role of foreign IT companies operating in China:

An article recently published in Xuexi Shibao (Study Times), an organ of the Central Party School, has drawn a lot of attention (see here and here). The authors, from the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, assert (a) that foreigners (“foreign capital” in the article’s terminology) have come to control the Chinese internet, and (b) that this is a bad thing. I’m not going to address the second point here; among other things, if the first point is false, then the second point is irrelevant.
