Send More WWE!

News.com reports that there is a large underground movement in China dedicated to the fast translation of American TV programs, which are then distributed by the Internet.

Chinese authorities are predictably mute on the subject, and TV spokesdroids are predictably upset over the copyright violations.

I see opportunity here. A lot of people are worried about the Chinese becoming a superpower. We can handle that easily--let them copy all the American TV they want. Muzzle the spokesdroids and turn a blind eye to what's going on. American popular "culture" will win the battle for us without a shot fired--except on reruns of Miami Vice.
