I am aware of a situation like this from one of my friends:

A Chinese company (A)is having a JV (C) with another American company(B) and the staff of Chinese company is making documentation for a kind of product manufactured/assembled at its facility.The Chinese staff is making use of illustration of B's competitor(D),another American company.

There are two facts:
1. B licenses C to manufacture that product at A's facility.
2. Before the JV occurs, A has a habit of blending pieces of documentation(including illustration) of foreign companies in the same industry. 

At present, everything is fine. In the long run, will there be legal ramifications for A and B?
