TPP a threat to knowledge and innovation
My son who works in IT has been furious with John Key - truly scathingly furious - for pursuing the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Jared is a "solutions architect", or was when he worked for a software firm in Auckland. A previous employer in Melbourne has recently hired him back. He hates the prospect of the TPP with a passion because, he told me, software developers already have to waste too much time and money fighting off idle patent suits from the United States.
