The following is from footnote number 135 of Niel Netanel's "Asserting Copyright's Democratic Principles in the Global Arena", Vanderbilt Law Review, Vol. 51, p. 217ff., March, 1998:

"[R]ecent Clinton Administration intellectual property agreements with the People's Republic of China mandate that China's central government assume the exclusive right to import compact disk presses and conduct constant surveillance of those CD factories that are still allowed to operate. The agreements also effectively require Chinese publishers to obtain approval from Beijing for each new title and place the notoriously ruthless Ministry of Public Security at the center of the intellectual property enforcement. See William P. Alford, 'Making the World Safe for What? Intellectual Property Rights, Human Rights and Foreign Economic Policy in the Post-European Cold War World', 29 N.Y.U. J. Int'l L. & Pol. 135, 143-45 (1997) (concluding that the agreements may well provide China's more authoritarian leaders with 'a convenient legitimization for repressive measures they intended to take in any event while simultaneously constraining America's capacity to complain.')"
