Haha yeah that one was a little bit more widespread than just someone opening one fake store. Chinese Authorities found 22 fake apple stores in just one Chinese city. The thing I find really interesting about this story though is that there were 0 real Apple Stores in that city, yet 22 fake ones were able to operate with quite a bit of business. That tells me maybe Apple is pretty aweful at figuring out where to expand and should seek out successful fake Apple Stores and buy out their location and staff rather than sue - at least rather than suing all of them.

There's also a fake Disney Land, but it went out of business and is now more of a depressing post-apocalyptic version instead of a believable fake.
