What should we expect? Same ol' neo-liberal BS aimed at protecting intellectual property like Windows 10 and prescription drugs, lining the pockets of a few at the expense of many. BUT with a NEW NAME, so Trump can pretend he did something. Trump is a con-man, who like Obama, used the public's craving for change to personal advantage and then never delivered change which would improve the life of his supporters.

There is a real and serious threat of Chinese IP problems that are impacting Americans even at the middle class levels. Anyone who has ever released a product that is easy to reproduce knows this first-hand. So this isn't just about the rich. However, that being said, laws already exist...it's the enforcement of them that China fails at so if these trade talks don't make it easier for patent/trademark holders to go after those in China who copy their ideas and make money, there is still a big failure.
