Reuters: Five stores in China have been discovered which claim to be “Apple Stores” but have no relationship with the iPhone maker. However, the city of Kunming has ordered two of those stores to close because they do not have the appropriate business permits.

“Media should not misunderstand the situation and jump to conclusions. Some overseas media has made it appear the stores sold fake Apple products,” said Chang Puyun, spokesman for Kunming’s business bureau. “China has taken great steps to enforce intellectual property rights and the stores weren’t selling fake products.”
