...If the name BYD sounds familiar then it may be because of its notorious reputation (http://www.motorauthority.com/another-chinese-copy-the-byd-f8.html) as a copyright infringer...
No doubt. All of China is.

But hey, ruthless international capitalism at it's best?

Warren is not often wrong.

Now we all know a copy of a copy doesn't come out too good :rolleyes:

China and ethics don't go hand in hand but I'm not sure that anything can realistically be done about it :o - If you know about prescription drugs and Canada, IMO this is right up the same alley.
