Shanghai's World Expo Song

In the lead-up to Expo 2010 Shanghai, China lined up some of its biggest stars — Jackie Chan, Andy Lau, Yao Ming — to record a "We Are the World"–style theme song titled "2010, Waiting for You." Shortly after it was released in April, however, netizens began commenting that the song's tune was strikingly similar to a 1997 ballad by Japanese singer Mayo Okamoto, "Stay the Way You Are." Expo organizers immediately suspended the use of the song — and then belatedly asked for permission to use the melody. Okamoto graciously granted the request.

China's Fine-Art Factory

Once a small village of 300 people in southern China, Dafen is now the center of the world's reproduction-art market, with factories of artists churning out tens of thousands of fake Picassos, Rembrandts, Van Goghs and Da Vincis each year. According to the state-run China Daily newspaper, the village (now a part of booming Shenzhen) accounts for 60% of the world's oil-painting market. Although the vast majority are reproductions, a burgeoning community of recent art graduates is also producing original works in Dafen. To encourage these artists, the local government built a $13 million museum in the village in 2007 and began offering some subsidized housing and residency rights.

Huanhai Landscape VA3 and Lifan 320

In a luxury-car-obsessed country, the Beijing Auto Show attracts swarms of people each year to gawk at the most extravagant new Lamborghinis, Bugattis and stretch Range Rovers. But shanzhai cars also feature prominently. Take the Huanhai Landscape VA3, which appeared at this year's auto show. It's an almost exact replica of a Lexus RX SUV. And two years ago, Lifan introduced a carbon copy of a Mini Cooper, the only major difference being that it has four doors instead of two. That, and the price tag: the Lifan 320 retails for about $7,500 in China, roughly a third of a Mini Cooper's cost in the U.S.

Already Apple, Dell, Hewlet Packard, Walmart, etc. are the numero uno for the American Marketing Company (AMC) and the scour the world for new products for the American market, using their personal specifications, quality specification to benefit from the entrepreuneral spirit around the globe!
