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.
2013 S4 Loaded (and NO RFT's) Awesome is an understatement
