Fake Taj Mahal
A film director in Bangladesh has announced plans to build an exact replica of the Taj Mahal. He's going to use the same marble and stone as the original, but to save time he's using machinery (rather than thousands of peasant workers) to construct it. His reason for building it: "Everyone dreams about seeing the Taj Mahal but very few Bangladeshis can make the trip because it's too expensive for them."
All of this has upset officials in India who have threatened to sue for copyright infringement because "You can't just go and copy historical monuments."
Personally, I think I'd find the fake Taj Mahal more interesting than the real thing. Link: Times Online
