    Apple Cracks Down on New York Pirate Stores


    We’ve all seen those incredible shots of the uncannily authentic looking fake Apple stores in China (which may, or may not, have been selling fake goods), but Reuters reports that Apple has recently been looking to tackle shops selling counterfeit Apple goods in the Chinatown section of Queens, New York. According to court records that were unsealed on Thursday, Apple has seized counterfeit iPod, iPhone and iPad accessories from two shops in Flushing, Queens. Apparently Apple is even insisting that the stores hand over the names of its customers and suppliers, as well as asking one of the stores, Apple Story, to change its name to avoid confusion with authentic Apple product merchants. It seems that Apple really takes this sort of thing seriously, sending representatives from the company over to check out the stores in Flushing on several occasions, and even buying some of the fake goods in question in order to thoroughly examine them, prior to issuing the lawsuit.
