It's not the first time (and probably not the last time). It's amazing how the second largest economy in the world allows such a blatant disregard for IPRs.

Remember Shuanghuan SCEO, which was a copy of the X5 (rear) and the X3 (front)?

Watched a very chilling but true interview of a Chinese car exec that said either they (a car mfg) sell us the tech cheap or we will just take it.
