What about the private property that they copied, albeit from books? Who is "too dumb to understand what is private property" here?

To all the strangely bitter people making angry posts to this article, I recommend you check your own attitudes. The new Chinese economy, since rejecting central planning, has long had an element of copying movies and software. This is what the author is referring to. The article is taking a look at an example of how this copying economy works in the case of paintings, and how some artists in China have already moved up the food chain and made original art. The exact same dynamic is going on in the electronics industry. To the people who read this and infer some kind of nationalistic insult, I feel sorry for you.

""Wait. You sell fake art produced by artists who copied them from books. But I am not allowed to take a picture of your fake art?"" Once I was in singapore downtown, I was stopped by a guard while I was trying to photo a building (capital group). the reason is simple , this is private property. you seems too dumb to understand what is 'private property', that's exactly your ancestors problem. They don't understand what's is other ppl's property, they have a right to it, you can't just walk in, take pictures, or take anything you are interested in. does EET has a editor in charge to censor this dumb and crazy ... before she post something?

hey, junk o, you might gone too far in generalize the term 'knockoff nation'. china has been diligent in generating original IPs , TD-LTE, TD-SCDMA etc. there could be a couple of unlawful individuals around as every where on top of the earth. how about we call jap ' whaling nation' 'prostitute nation' or 'nuked nation'? which one you prefer?

I don't know if it should be viewed as other than a human way of making lifescale postcards or photographs. Maybe pretentious? As long as they include the artist and copyright in the fine print at a corner or on the label, shouldn't be dismissed as knockoff.

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
