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.

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
