Lei Feng, a legendary PLA soldier in the 50s, was a nation-wide role model of social morality and serving the people. When media online and offline in China start to spin the “Learn from comrade Lei Feng” propaganda all over again in full gear. Baidu already has Lei Feng’s name all over its products.
Baidu, China’s biggest search engine, is under fire for copyright violation. The call for copyright protection received almost universal support from netizens. Yet, when the government cracked down P2P websites like BT China and VeryCD, Chinese netizens responded with anger and criticism. In the case of Baidu, they seem to turn pro-copyright overnight.
