Haiti's government angrily condemned Chile for launching an earthquake which 'infringed Haiti's intellectual property'. The President called the quake as 'a shameless attempt to cash in on Haiti's ground-breaking international aid strategy'.
At a news conference he said that Chile should 'come up with it's own natural disasters'. When pressed for examples, he recommended 'a plague of giant killer ants or a new disease that makes your face fall off.'
The Chilieans have defended their position, saying that earthquakes were 'not subject to copyright', and 'in no way the property of Haiti'. When criticised for a lack of inventiveness and an inadequate death toll, the Chilean President said that the images of raging fires were 'much more exciting than collapsed buildings', and that they represented 'genuine creative enhancements to the earthquake process.'
The UN has encouraged all states to hold off on further natural disasters, 'especially earthquakes' as charity record supplies are running low.
