    Default All I can say is "Wow" China

    http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/top-sto...5875-21018152/

    China has confirmed itself as the 'king of counterfeiters' with the building of a new shopping centre dedicated to fake brands.
    Look at the names closely...

    Yeah, Jess showed me these the other day. Are they for real or a joke?

    It's for real - I guess the government is getting pressured to stop it because it's bad for their foreign reputation and it makes the country look bad. Who knows what's going to happen with it.

    That is so strange. I talked to someone in my company that used to travel to Asia a lot and he said that you can even get authentic stuff really really cheap there. He got a suitcase full of Polo shirts for $35. IT's because the workers either steal or the items you get are the items that didn't pass QC - he said they were authentic and he bought them directly in front of a factory that made them.

    I bet the excess fake coach's are due to factory workers stealing fabric and patterns ...

    I don't know, there are photoshop wizards out there that can really manipulate images anywhere you go, but I believe that something like this exists... I think China doesn't even care with the economic powerhouse that they were. Anyway, really funny, Pizza Huh?

    This isn't a Photoshop job, unfortunately. It's real, and to me completely disgusting.

    " Pizza Huh" makes me laugh. That's too outrageous to be real.

    I just don't get it.. how is this even possible? I'm sure if the companies knew about this they wouldn't be there for long. I remember in my business law class we studied many cases about similar situations -- starbucks and mcdonalds were the most common. (it's crazy / interesting how much product placement are in text books). They sue anybody with a similar name, because they don't want brand identity confusion.

    Thanks for the article lil
