WELCOME…to Copyright Infringement Park!

"Not Illidan Stormrage - Probably Yllidan Stormrage"

I’m not saying that the Chinese have all the good ideas, but… they totally do.  Take, for instance, “World Joyland”.  Sure, it’s a rather catch-all name, but what it fails to show in the name, it makes up with in blatant copyright infringement on Blizzard Entertainment, the company that makes Warcraft, World of Warcraft, Starcraft and Diablo.

This theme park’s two major sections are called: Universe of Starcraft and Terrain of Warcraft. Can you imagine?  And they don’t just have similar stuff, they straight steal actual Blizzard character designs.

"Anyone for a splash of monster blood?"

It’s pretty incredible.  After the jump there’s a video and several story links to The Escapist and Geeks Are Sexy, including a picture gallery of the wonders that you’re missing by not getting on a boat to China (or digging a hole straight down through the ground) RIGHT NOW.

Let’s all gather ’round the campfire and spin yarns about how, regardless of what a crappy knock-off it is, we all still REALLY want to go!
