Disney and Pixar Animation were recently awarded damages by a Shanghai court after ruling that a Chinese-made film called “The Autobots” infringed copyright of Disney’s film “Cars”.  The infringing film, released in July 2015, had grossed the equivalent of $863,000.

Chinese producer Bluemtv and distributor G-Point were fined the equivalent of $190,000.  The court ruled the Chinese producers illegally used Disney’s characters and posters and the film title “Autobots” sounded similar to “Cars”.
