China ups ante: photocopies entire village

The Chinese seem to have built the world’s biggest photocopier. OK, so that might not be the exact way they managed to replicate a whole Austrian town and put the copy in the middle of their country, but it’s still bloody impressive.

To begin with the Austrians were, to put it mildly, not impressed when it turned out that the copy of Hallstatt – a centuries-old village of 900 and a UNESCO heritage site – now had an identical twin in China, but since then they’ve grown more used to the idea.

It does, however, pose some serious questions about what you need to put a trademark logo on in the future….
