Changzhou Global Animation Joyland Clones Offline Version Of Activision Blizzard's World of Warcraft/Starcraft

The world's first game themed entertainment park is Global Animation Joyland, in Changzhou, Jiangsu province. It cloned the American game producer Activision Blizzard's World of Warcraft (WoW) into "Terrain of Magic" and Activision Blizzard's StarCraft into "Universe of Starship" designs and made them into attractions. Adapting a copyrighted game into a real life park falls within the scope of the copyright protection of the work. It would be interesting to know if the park was discussed during the realisation of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on intellectual property between the Under Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property and Director of the USPTO David Kappos and the Jiangsu's Provincial People's Government of the People's Republic of China, see here.
