09/09/2011, Given all the patent wars that are going on right now, you would think Rovio’s lawyers would be swooping in like angry birds (sorry, could not resist!) onto an Angry Birds theme park in China, claiming that they are infringing on intellectual property, so on and so forth.

09/06/2011, The folks at China do get the short end of the stick sometimes when it comes to gizmos, despite being the country that churns out some of the most clones of famous devices such as the entire iClone run, not to mention raising the ire of Rovio with a non-licensed Angry Birds park.

08/25/2011, The names Lady GaGa and Beyonce Knowles are certainly household ones – but when it comes to China – a country that has banned Facebook, authorities there are far stricter on what their population can or cannot listen/watch/read.
