Copying web 2.0 site is not always successful

EBay in China has retreated due to the decrease of their business although they entered China market much earlier than TaoBao, a native company which has similar business to EBay at its early stage. It is said that Ebay suffered in China market because they did not tailor their business model according to the characteristics of China market. So simply copying models does not necessarily mean success.

Since I got the news from a portal web site in China, I did not put it here. I just found a similar one written in English and added it to the post.
