∞ China to investigate fake Apple stores


The inspections will look into business licenses, authorized permits on brand use, and the purchase channel of each store, said a worker with the city’s industrial and commercial department.

I don’t think anyone was surprised when these fake stores first cropped up. We were all watching it like we watch a train wreck, wondering what was going to happen, but we weren’t surprised. Remember all of the fake iPods? I don’t know what will happen here.
