Thanks for bringing this to our attention! This indeed seems to be a website with close to no content, trying to look official and begging for donations. As I don't know about Chinese regulations regarding such copies, I don't know what one could do about them though.

Any forum people here who have experience with such Chinese copies and what to do about them?

That's clearly a phishing site, and it has no content other than begging for donations. Most of the navigation links all go to the same place. I'd contact the government there over that as the intent is clearly fraud. I started searching for where to report this and have come up dry.

I suppose you could also report it as a phishing site so Chrome and Firefox automatically block it.

That's likely more productive than my suggestion. Guess where roughly 80% of phishing is said to originate?

I am not a lawyer but I do know that trademarks are either defended or lost.

done, looks like Google powers both chrome and firefox anti phishing, reported through IE as well.
