1.The whole essay question:
While some scholars contend that the surge of shanzhai products indicates China’s lack of creativity and its surging “copycat” culture, others argue that the term shanzhai is not necessarily associated with the negative images of counterfeits or knockoffs. Rather, it represents a new form of grassroots innovation as symbolizes consumer rebellion or cultural nationalism. State your opinions on these debates and explain the complex meanings embedded in the shanzhai phenomenon with examples.
