So I don't know if this has reached the eyes and ears of the forum goers here yet but I have literally just seen this and felt my jaw drop slightly as I did it.

The Chinese have made a World of Warcraft themepark and completely disregarded copyright, the audacity and complete uncaring of it is actually making me laugh!

Hopefully we'll go to war with China one day, sign my up to the Army because I'm fed up of how they ignore the rest of the worlds laws.

Well, they freely rip off automobile designs, and knock off thousands of other products; why would a trivial thing like a game copyright bother them?

Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.

I'd like to point out that almost (read below) all of the photos I can find via that link and through a few more are loosely, if at all, based on WoW. They appear to be generic fantasy elements (dragons, centaurs, elves, etc).

 

The one photo you can confirm is a WoW reference is a sign mentioning Kael'thas - and this could simply be a nod from the themepark designers to WoW.

 

While I would love a WoW themepark - this is a strecth OP.

You are surprised?

The Chinese bought from the Russians 2-3 modern fighter planes and they reverse engineered them and proceeded to mass produce them, and you think they will stop at a video game?

they steal technology , simple!

Looks cheesy to me, but then again all themeparks are pretty lame, they just feel over the top touristy and artificial...
