This is another one that happened last week, that I just don’t want to lose track of.
The blog, BirdAbroad, posted an entry on July 20 where she exposed fake Apple Stores (or Apple Stoer) in Kunming, China.
She’s also started another post where she’s asking her now HALF MILLION! readers to send her pictures of other fake Apple Stores. Pictures have come in worldwide from Venezuela to Croatia, and some even from the United States.
On Monday, ZDNet reported that Chinese authorities have discovered five fake stores and have closed two so far.
Amazing – we’ve had quite a bit of attention on brandjacking online, but who knew it could be this blatant?
