Here we have a blogger who quotes Spiegel Online about a Chinese Bus-manufacturer who is supposed to be brazenly copying the luxury-buses of the German manufacturer MAN. 3 month later they received a visit from a judicial officer who announced that the Chinese manufacturer was suing the blogger for a public apology and commercial compensation before a Chinese court of law.
For a while now I am well aware that the customs of
theft getting inspired are somewhat different in China. Though I really hope that this will not be a precedent in having to travel around the world to justify yourself.
Update: Spiegel Online is also adopting this issue now.
