China irks US with computer security review rules

Quote
BEIJING (AP) -- The Chinese government is stirring trade tensions with Washington with a plan to require foreign computer security technology to be submitted for government approval, in a move that might require suppliers to disclose business secrets.

This is yet another interesting move by the Chinese.  Not sure that anything will come of it, but you can only have so many straws placed on the camel's back before it breaks:  bad economy, pushy foreign governements, multiple "war" fronts, etc.
