Abstract
The year of 2008 witnessed many great events happening in china. Beijing held its first Olympic games in April 8th, and ended up winning the most gold medals, replacing America as number.1 in the gold medal list. In September 25th, china launched shenzhou-7 mission, and completed its first space walk. In the same year, Shan zhai phenomenon was so widespread in china that Chinese can encounter products of Shan zai in almost every corner of their daily life, from mobile phones to digital cameras, wine to medicine, New Year galas to movies. Nokir and samsing anycat mobilephone are just a few examples. Shan zai was even the subject of a heated debate at this year’s national people’s congress held in Beijing in March, with some members, criticising the vast number of Shan Zai products as low-quality counterfeits while others advocated more tolerance given to the benefits of Shan zhai to Chinese society. This thesis aims to examine and explore how this phenomenon began to take root in china and how it helped shape the daily life of Chinese, and identifies the reasons behind this widespread and wild phenomenon.

As a result, great changes took place in this ancient civilization with a long history of about 5000 years. The most striking feature of this process is the widespread copycat phenomenon which runs wild today, bringing us cheap and easy access to modern technology, especially phones and music players of different kinds. In 1979, china is a relatively poor country compared to western industrial countries.

In that period, Chinese give class struggle the first priority, ignoring economic development. The economy therefore became stagnant while economies of other countries in Asia like South Korea and Japan are booming.
