Angry Birds Theme Park Opens In China

An unauthorized theme park based on the mobile game Angry Birds has opened at Window of the World Park in Changsha, China. Participants can use a real giant slingshot to knock pigs off a structure, as seen in a video clip.
Fortunately, the birds and the pigs are not as real as the intellectual property case that the game’s owners have against the park, which CNNGo reports opened on September 1 in Hunan province as part of a month-long stress reduction festival.

“This [Angry Birds park] serves as a method for people to purge themselves and to gain happiness,” a park official told Chinese gaming website

Rovio, the company that produces the game, may license the rights to an Angry Birds themed park in the future, but no deal was made with the people who opened the Chinese attraction. Link

My fifth grade class has made a real life angry birds game (rubber bands, paper balls, snap cubes for the pigs!). Maybe I should charge admission! As one student told me "it's addicting".

Rovio has been highly-tolerant, even openly encouraging of fan-art, including people making and selling Angry Birds items on Etsy and the like — Rovio regularly tweets links to such things.

Given that, I've been curious how an IP lawsuit would hold up if they ever brought one, as IP is usually a defend-it-or-lose-it proposition. Will be interested to see what happens with it.
