Shenzhen: A Case Study Alternative to Western-style Innovation - Bunnie Huang -FOSSASIA 2018

Published on: Sunday, 25 March 2018

Speaker: Bunnie Huang, Freelancer Chibitronics PTE LTD

The classic "Western" IP bargain -- socially-sanctioned, time-limited monopolies in exchange for taking creative and technological risks -- is an age-old concept dating from 15th century Venice. Since then, the Internet was invented, changing the metric for innovation from attribution to virality. The age-old IP bargain has struggled to keep up with this transformation. This talk examines Shenzhen as a culturally isolated petri dish for innovation that exploded symbiotically with the Internet. I will share my observations on the trends and practices that are evolving in an ecosystem that is unbiased by the Western IP bargain.
