According to Rocket News, a ground-breaking ceremony for an amusement park featuring one piece was held in Dafeng city in China on May 16th. The area of the park will be 135.5 ha and the total cost for the construction will be about $75 million. However, Shueisha, the publisher of One Piece replied to the inquiry of Rocket News that they have not granted an official permission to the project. Although the official Chinese translation of One Piece is "航海王", the name of the amusement part is a theme park featuring "海賊王", which is the common translation of One Piece used in pirated products.

Wow, seriously? The One Piece theme park sounds kinda cool, but then again the Chinese are making themselves look bad [for not getting authorization to work on the project].

This is not even the first time things like this happened...

The concept of copyrighted doesn't exist in China.

Really? I could have sworn the latter is the official title for One Piece in Chinese.

Thanks, person who gave me this on another site a long time ago, lol.

Is it really that hard to obtain permission to build the park?

It's because it's Japanese, the Chinese won't give two squirts of piss about copyrights. Plus, the Chinese would have to pay them. And they won't have any of that.

What's with China never getting authorization for things? They should at least realize that it never works out well.

Who am I kidding, they won't.

If I recall correctly, there is a One Piece theme park in Japan as well. Could be wrong though.

This theme park idea would have been so awesome. Sadly they simply couldn't set it up the proper way and so they get screwed.

A normal operation of China, and no surprising. But the contents holders should act against the thief.

I can see it now! To try to avoid copyright they'll make slight changes.
Better be ready guys! Zolo is making a comeback!

(If you don't get it the old 4kids English dub of OP named Zoro Zolo instead.)
Touch me, you filthy casual~

Pirates blame the pirate acts about the pirate manga. And here is an opinion from the guy whose country has the Kingdom from the Viking; the pirates!
So many pirates!

Need "Letter of Marque", bodacious pirates?

Coming from the place that produces products like "Somy, iPob, PZP" and so on, this isn't particularly interesting.

Hahaha, I don't know what to say about it, I do love One Piece, but I'm more likely going to China first rather than Japan and I really do want to be in a One piece theme park!

But that's bad for Oda-sensei! :S

HAHA considering that, I don't want to see fake/ugly one piece stuff in the park...

I hope they'll give permission to China, but I don't think so... XD

I'm pretty sure I read an article stating they did get permission to build this amusement park, which was a shock to everyone.

Was that a lie or a misprint from where ever I read it?

First gundam copyright, then a angry birds copyright(which i think got settled in someway) and what now, a one piece copyright. what is this madness
If your going to complain that Yu-Gi-Oh! Mangas are on the top NY times manga best sellers, you must not realize how popular Card games are(as well as the fact that you get a free card).

Sure it does, they just don't give a rat's ass about foreign copyrights.

No, it's really very simple, they're extreme nationalists who don't care what foreigners and foreign interests think.

Well yeah, its not easy considering it will require a lot of paper work and a lot of money.

And once again, China trying to copy Japan. -_-

The question is what can Japan do about it? I don't think China will allow Japan to shutdown that theme park. If other multinational companies can't stop China from making pirated goods then there is no way Shonen Jump and Oda can stop this.

China is one big bully. If you think this is bad. How about those border disputes in Mongolia or Spratly Island and Scarborough Shoal standoff in the Philippines? China is trying to expand their territories by literally ignoring international laws!!! And the worse part is, they have 2nd biggest GDP next only to the US!!! IF they ever become a super power, say good bye to copyright laws and world peace!!!
