Russian Talents Shine in IT Contests

A number of these type of headlines recently; Russian Talents Shine in IT Contests:

Moscow State University student Pyotr Mitrichev, 21, took the gold this month at a major programming competition in the United States. His prize was the latest in a string of victories by Russian programmers.

Googling Pyotr Mitrichev suggests that this is not his first go at this sort of thing.

However, quality of programming is a necessary but not sufficient condition for building entrepreneurial businesses that  can compete in global markets.

I am glad that VVP emphasized IP issues again.  As I have written a number of times the issue is not in the law as it is written, though it could do with some cleaning up.  The issue is implementation; either in the courts or in the perehods (underpasses) or at Gorbushka.  This only requires Government competence.
