By Mixing Tech and Human Rights Sanctions on China, the White House Crosses the Rubicon
Conspicuously absent from an emerging China-U.S. trade truce is the outstanding issue of U.S. export restrictions against Huawei. The omission reveals an uncomfortable and growing reality for U.S. tech firms: Politically convenient trade truces will come and go, but the strategic competition between the United States and China is deepening. Technology is a fundamental component of this broader rivalry, which also makes it a radioactive element in the trade talks and a prime target for China hawks advocating a decoupling of the U.S. and Chinese economies. At this stage of the competition, national security, human rights and sovereignty are getting mashed together along with American public attitudes on how to contend with China when it comes to shaping U.S. policy. As a result, the political room to negotiate on an issue like Huawei is narrowing by the day, driving a more hard-line U.S. policy toward China overall.

U.S.: A Chipmaker's Patent Lawsuits Risk Upending the High-Tech Industry
Legal action taken by U.S.-based chipmaker GlobalFoundries has the potential to disrupt supply chains for manufacturers of a variety of consumer electronic devices, including heavy hitters such as Apple Inc. In multiple lawsuits filed Aug. 27 in the United States and Germany and in a complaint filed with the U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC), GlobalFoundries accuses rival Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. (TSMC) of infringing on its patents by using its protected methods and equipment to manufacture certain types of semiconductors. It is seeking an import ban of the chips made by TSMC outside the United States using those processes and of any devices containing those chips.

How the 'Wild West' of the Internet Will Be Won
National defense is one of a government's core responsibilities. The pursuit traditionally has played out on land, over water and, since the 20th century, in air and space. But today, cyberspace is emerging as the latest theater of national defense as governments around the world take more of their critical functions and day-to-day operations online. And the internet is such a recent phenomenon that, unlike the other theaters of defense, it lacks international agreements and institutions to govern it. At least for now. To address the pitfalls in the current regulatory system (or lack thereof) New York State's Department of Financial Services will begin enforcing a new set of cybersecurity regulations Aug. 28. Financial services firms in New York by that time will have had 180 days to bring their operations into compliance with the new measures, which first took effect in March. The regulations are broad, requiring companies to have

Thirty years into the information technology revolution, new developments continue to change the world. As tech conglomerates such as Google continue to advance and expand into new industries, they could become supranational powers beyond state control -- and yet integral to it and new global powers.
The Tech Revolution Comes of Age
Technological revolutions frame historical eras. Each cycle thrusts new sectors into prominence, turning companies into strategic assets for their respective governments to exploit. The information technology revolution is no different. The companies that operate in this space -- such as Samsung, Apple, Google, Facebook and Baidu -- are among the most powerful in the world today. At the same time, they often find themselves at the center of geopolitical disputes.

The U.S. Commerce Department on March 8 officially put into place export restrictions on the sale of equipment by U.S. companies to Chinese telecom manufacturer ZTE Corp., the world's seventh-largest producer of smartphones. The restrictions will reinforce Beijing's overall strategic drive to move away from foreign reliance on components for its technology manufacturing industry and develop the capability to design and manufacture its own.
