and show little sign of achieving, is creating their own, domestically invented, world-changing products.

In Italy, or the United Kingdom, or Japan, or the US.

Why would China need to patent something? They've probably stolen it in the first place, and once the technology changes, they'll steal that as well. Do business with them at your peril, especially if you have proprietary information that they might want. The only law China respects is that of the jungle.
