Virtual Canal Street

November 1, 2011 - Harry Eagar
Canal Street in Manhattan is famous for knockoffs of designer goods. I had heard of fake Prada, fake Rolex, fake Viagra and fake Sony. But it had not occurred to me that there would be fake Apples.

Bloomberg News says there are.

Nut grafs:

"The success of Apple Inc. (AAPL)’s iPad isn’t just drawing more competition to the tablet market. It’s attracting thousands of counterfeit and knockoff products.

"On a single day in July, almost 18,000 fakes and clones resembling the iPad and Android devices were available for sale on 23 e-commerce sites, according to MarkMonitor Inc., a San Francisco-based firm that helps companies protect their brands."
