    And no one could see that coming? Really? They really wouldn't need to sue anyone, the Chinese government will probably react quite quickly to a situation that might negatively infringe on their big investment in Shanghai.

    I've long heard that a driving factor in creating the Shanghai Disneyland project was to give Disney a physical presence in China to help them crackdown on various copyright infringements. This seems like a perfect place to finally check how that theory will work in reality. The general populace of China has a very different attitude toward copyright infringement than in most Western cultures, so it seems like the only way to stop it is to get help from the top

    I do find it curious that this is taking place at the parks owned by the guy how just last week was (prematurely?) announcing Disney's demise

    The Chinese are braggarts. The more money they have, the bigger the bragging.

    The guy was claiming that Disney is no longer a theme park innovator and yet he's got knock off Disney characters entertaining people at his properties. Oh the irony.
