A Little Trouble in Big China

Happy Columbus Day Blog. This is a piece I did for Business Week and a story about intellectual property rights violations. Apparently China is one of biggest culprits when it comes to IPR violations, and now they're starting to get a taste of their own medicine as Chinese versions of YouTube are allowing the posting of copyrighted material.

I've never attempted Chinese calligraphy before, but the symbols on the movie screen read "The End", and were a nice suggestion by the art director. Hopefully I didn't butcher them too bad.

As a bonus, here's another concept I had for the story. Ultimately it didn't really involve IPR violations specifically, but it just really made me laugh:

Alternate Chinese Piracy Concept

See you later this week Blog.
