Every once in a while I travel back to China to visit my family and friends. China is a wonderful country and I urge all of you to visit. Its rich culture and delicious food will never make you forget. However, there is one thing I can’t stand in China and that would be the COPYCATS.
Yes, China is filled with copycats. In fact it is one of major factors that affect China’s international image. Since intellectual property laws in China are premature due to lack of enforcements, small businesses tend to think that it is totally alright to rip off foreign corporations. Local Chinese people are fully aware of the situation. They even came up with a term for rip offs called Shanzhai, meaning products manufactured in the mountain villas.
