Disney? Or Disnot?

Anyone who thinks that China is now starting to properly get to grips with intellectual property rights may have to think again once they see the story reported here. Japanese bloggers (here and here) have apparently 'uncovered' a Chinese state-owned amusement park at Shijingshan, some features of which (see photo right) may be familiar to some readers. Other characters in the form of short bearded men, colourful bouncing tigers and yellow honey-loving bears have also apparently been spotted.

The IPKat vaguely wonders if Disney's lawyers are at all interested.
