I don't think it would be wise for the foundation to take any action
that would not be correctly backed up by a chinese law firm
explaining us what we can do, and what we cannot do. As much from a
legal point of view, than from a PR or a political one.

This could be the case if the PRC were to put all its muscle
behind it, but it's not necessarily so. Their encyclopedia is
apparently a small part of this Internet company, which is a small
part of something bigger, in several steps. We don't mind their
making their own encyclopedia, only the GFDL violation. Perhaps
this violation was just a mistake by some middle manager, and not
this decade's strategic policy of the whole communist party.
Make a map of their power hierarchy and figure out whose decision
we're fighting, and how we can turn that person's boss into our
friend. Make it easy for them to prune this dead branch from
their organization tree. This may involve their NASDAQ status,
their U.S. trading partners, etc.
What does Baide Baiku write about copyright, WIPO and such things?
Do they explain concepts like licensing and copyright violations?
