Eight Japanese F-15 fighter jets flew over China's sovereign air space over Diaoyudao to intercept a Chinese survellance plane on December 22, 2012, exactly as what happened one week earlier. But these Japanese military planes were unable to exercise any jurisdiction over Diaoyudao, as the Chinese propeller plane continued its patrol over Diaoyudao. Although outwardly, the Japanese seemed to have outgunned the Chinese, legally speaking, China was the one doing the patrolling and the Japanese acted merely as belligerents and intruders, not daring to attack the Chinese surveillance plane.
It illustrates who has the RIGHT (China) and who has the MIGHT (Japan).
China won because the Japanese planes dared not attack or exercise any jurisdiction. The Chinese plane, on the other hand, was able to exercise China's jurisdiction, China should send more patrols each time, and time it such that the Japanese planes would be back at their bases already. In this manner, it will be apparent to all that Japan is only capable of empty threats, while China is doing actual surveillance over its sovereign territory.
