    If you can't beat them, block them.

    Apparently China's animation studios weren't able to produce cartoons nearly as popular as several US series, and in an effort to make their own shows more popular, they will now force people to watch Chinese cartoons during prime time instead of foreign cartoons.

    This is exactly why governments shouldn't be able to get any more feet in the doors of cable and network television...

    Chinese people can still watch these popular shows, but only after 8pm at night.

    China will pirate every bit of software America produces. They also ignore national and international patents. They are a bunch of cheaters when it comes to world economics and they have profitited very well from it.
