Adventures in Copyright: The Burberry Store in China Vs. the 'Buebelly' Store in China Edition

My friend Shane is currently living in China, and thankfully he likes to regale me with crazy tales about Chinese models and karaoke. Today's update? This photo of a store located in Shenzhen called "Buebelly," which is obviously meant to imitate Burberry.

China has always been known for its designer knockoffs and lately entire knock off stores have been cropping up in big cities.

This photo of a store located in Shenzhen called "Buebelly," which is obviously meant to imitate Burberry. There are apparently other "off-brand" stores, as he offered, "I could probably get you some Lobotoms also, and maybe a nice Pendi bag?" The best part is that across from this shopping center is a mall which contains all the brands these stores hope to steal business from.

As Shane says when he finishes these stories, "Because China." What else is there to say?
