Despite a harsh year of partisan bickering, Congress has shown how amazingly fast it can come together for the benefit of the movie industry. Democrats and Republicans have demanded that the administration file suit before the WTO as the only way to demonstrate to China that the United States is serious about these issues. A case against China with the WTO could cause extreme economic sanctions to be put in place.
Representative Benjamin L. Cardin of Maryland, who is the ranking Democrat on the House Ways and Means trade subcommittee, said in an interview that he was disappointed in the administration's decision. "Putting China on a watch list means nothing," Mr. Cardin said. "The administration has to understand that Congress is serious and wants action on China."

Economic Sanctions toward China would be crippling. Chinese exports account for more than seventy percent of goods sold in Wal-Mart stores alone. If that supply line were cut off, many lower income US families would go broke. Due to a domino effect of bankruptcy and rising prices the overall damage to the economy would be incalculable.
The United States Chamber of Commerce says that if the Chinese were made to pay full price for their DVDs, American industry could recoup more than $200 billion a year. That’s $100 per man woman and child in China, or about $300 for a family of 3. With rural Chinese having an annual net income of $353.70, that’s a commitment to staying entertained.
