“Copied” Apple Stores ordered to Shut down

Written by | Apple, Tech

Remember those “Copied” Apple stores in China? It appears those stores got a visit from a number of Chinese Authorities and not it appears that a number of those Fake Apple Store will be shut down because they don’t have the necessary business permits.

What’s more strange is that the owner of those “fake” store even went on and said that he doing Apple a Favor by selling authentic Apple products and said that Apple Store are easy to copy. Anyway, if only his stores are authorized reseller then I guess there won’t be any problem. Then again they’re using Apple’s logo without the company’s permission. Do you think it’s best for Chinese Authorities to order these stores to shut down, rather than tell them to get the necessary permits? Comments are welcome.
