Chinese copy?

Readers who were at this year's Motor Law conference in February will remember David Musker's entertaining review of copying problems in the motor industry. We have left all those boring arguments about copyright in spare parts far behind - nowadays, it's copying entire vehicles. This story in Just Auto about the interestingly-named Brilliance-Jinbei S50, which bears a close resemblance to the Kia Sorento (and where did that name come from, and did it lose an "r" on the way?), might be the latest manifestation of this tendancy. Worth bringing to your attention, anyway.
