Why counterfeit products when you can counterfeit an entire store?

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
9 to 5 Mac has discovered a counterfeit Apple Store in Kunming, China. I have to admit that this kind of chutzpah is impressive. It reminds me of the time that some geniuses managed to counterfeit an entire company, complete with letterhead, order forms, and the like.

As a side note, in China, official Apple Stores only exist in Beijing and Shanghai (not even in Hong Kong). Kunming is a bit off the beaten path...

Excerise for the lawyers: how many IP violations can you spot? Are there any contractual issues? And what might Apple's remedy be?
