In full-scale trade war, US and China are looking to tax each other at every opportunity.

China expresses concern that opponents are treating innovation and intellectual property as if they were US exclusive patents, using the national security excuse. Thus, they consider intellectual property rights to be the rights of a single country, and use them to stop the development of other countries and to serve their own interests.
The US proposal to step up control over technology exports in key areas of advanced technology, such as artificial intelligence and microprocessor technology, is received with skepticism by Chinese officials who consider it an invalid excuse for strengthening the national security invoked by the Americans.
Chinese experts believe that national security can be achieved in an open market, and the American approach only generates unnecessary trade barriers and hinders a balanced trade development. Also, such measures will only affect the interests of US companies operating on the foreign markets, both financially and in terms of business opportunities.
