China, long known for producing counterfeit consumer gadgets, software and brand name clothing, has reached a new piracy milestone - fake Apple stores. They were discovered and made public on a blog in late July. This week, the company won a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction against several retail stores in the Chinatown section of Queens, New York, that sell cases and other accessories for Apple products, including the iPhone, iPod and iPad. The company's lawsuit, which accuses the stores of infringing Apple's trademarks, comes amid recent reports of multiple fake Apple stores being uncovered in China.
