Famous Anish Kapoor’s sculpture Cloud Gate in Chicago.

Kapoor, whose sculpture was opened to the public in 2006 in Chicago and named Cloud Gate, said:

It seems that in China today it is permissible to steal the creativity of others

I feel I must take this to the highest level and pursue those responsible in the courts.

– complains irritated Kapoor.

I hope that the Mayor of Chicago will join me in this action. The Chinese authorities must act to stop this kind of infringement and allow the full enforcement of copyright.

– added the famous architect and tried to threat Chinese ‘thieves’.

However, China denies any kind of plagiarism stating that their creation has completely different form and entirely other meaning.

While we use similar materials, the shapes and meanings are different.

Cloud Gate intends to reflect the sky, but ours reflects the ground.

– claimed famous Chinese journalist Ma Jun in the interview with the Wall Street Journal via it’s China Real Time blog.
