Following up on our earlier post about Chinese piracy, Forbidden Planet’s Joe Gordon recently published this photograph of a thought-provoking poster outside Saint John’s church on the corner of Princes Street and Lothian Road in Edinburgh, right in the shadow of the castle. He reports the picture has been vandalised at least twice with the monk defaced, and it’s been the subject of a complaint from the Chinese consulate to the church.

The protest actually created more press attention than the original poster’s appearance did, so this protest seems to have backfired somewhat!
