BEIJING — The Kardashian sisters don't sell their clothing and perfume in China, and you can't buy authentic J. Crew khakis here. But both names are already trademarked by Chinese businesspeople looking to profit from American enterprises that want to tap China's booming retail market. Extortion? Nope. It's called "trademark squatting. " And it's legal in China, where trademarks generally are awarded to those who are first to register them with government authorities. If these and other U.S. companies want to use their own names, they probably will have to pay the Chinese holder for the rights.

In your Sept. 14 editorial on free trade, you make the claim that the "conciliatory approach" of the Bush Administration has caused an important breakthrough in China's human rights policies: Beijing is now "barring the use of prison labor for manufactured exports." You must be basing this claim on the Aug. 7 "Memorandum of Understanding" signed by the U.S. and Chinese governments. It's a very clever document. In it, Beijing reaffirms what it has always said before: that it is against China's regulations to export prison labor products.

China is used to dour Communist Party leaders with sanitized resumes, but the new team unveiled Monday has glamorous wives, exposure to Tiananmen-era student leaders and even a brush with divorce. That's not to suggest that China's monopoly party is going tabloid. The tough crowd that forged modern China behind such mantras as "power stems from the barrel of a gun" remains secretive, heavy-handed and wary of any challenge to its authority.
