It is interesting that Americans (generalisation) are very sensitive
about Chinese "stealing" copyright but apparently see nothing wrong with
'stealing' indigenous peoples copyright.So sensitive in fact to instigate
a 'trade' war over the issue. Yet when the rights of indigenous people
are concerned they are trivilised and made a joke thereof. And war is
anything but a joke.
