The Chinese SS ?

Came across this little sign when I was walking home from my friend's house an hour or two ago:

 

Chinese SS sign

 

The Chinese characters read  中国名牌 which more-or-less means "China Brand" and I guess the logo in the middle represents that brand... but it looks remarkably like the old Nazi SS insignia.

Just downloaded a BBC documentary called Building the Great Pyramid and settled down to watch it. Started off like any other documentary. Just  as the introduction got underway we are suddenly treated to the main theme of The Pirates of the Caribbean with some minor alterations in key.

 I wasn't sure whether this was the BBC just being lazy and blatently stealing music from films or they'd paid the fee to use the theme (I understand that the BBC has a library of music it's paid for either on the basis of individual pieces or with deals with various corporations to use their library). Anyone know for sure whether the Beeb's being dirty-handed or legitimately using a resource?
