Copyright is a funny old game. The government launched 'Land of Enlightenment', a CD-Rom quiz teaching the basics of intellectual property rights at the Wan Chai Comics Festival yesterday. Great game, we said. Can we get a copy of the disc?

'Er, sorry no,' the red-faced rep said. It appears that at the last minute, someone noticed it featured a trademarked character not cleared for use.

'I would love to give you a disc,' she said, 'but I am afraid it would be a copyright infringement.'
