The Beijing Intellectual Property Office asleep on the job

Most eyes in China have been watching the main stock index as it fell in response to a large rise on stock purchase stamp duty. That means that very few people probably noticed this classic photo posted on from the 10th Chinese High Tech Expo. Let me quote directly:

Here is the booth from the Beijing Intellectual Property Office. The office oversees intellectual property enforcement in the city. They have a hotline–dial 12312–to report intellectual property infringement in a country awash with pirated software and movies. (Pirated Windows XP sells for $1.30 in the streets, for example.) The man attending the booth, though, is taking a nap. Does anyone else see the irony?
