Rolling the dice. - By Henry Lanman - Slate Magazine

Rolling the dice. - By Henry Lanman - Slate Magazine: "As the United States knows better than anyone, useful intellectual-property protection requires a shared set of global enforcement agreements. Precisely because it has the most to gain from this system, the United States is also uniquely vulnerable to gaps in it. And that's why allowing countries like Antigua to suspend intellectual-property treaties in trade disputes gives them such a potent weapon, a fact that the United States, much to its annoyance, may soon learn."

A petard, a sudden explosion...then the Wiley Coyote look.
