Doing a naughty in Shanghai

A Korean importing firm was busted in China with over US$350,000 of fakes including Louis Vuitton, Hello Kitty, and Calvin Klein. The story in substance is not too suprising, many fakes in Korea come from China. Perhaps in what you can see as progress in China the Korean firm had to make attempts to hide the fakes, however the "bag-in-a-bag" techique is usaally done when the fakes are exported, so perhaps it was just timing.

You got to love this quote from a Shanghai offical investigating the case:

"Such case involving foreign companies and a large quantity of pirated brands is quite rare," said Li Xin, a bureau official.

Yes, and he is probably "Shocked, SHOCKED to find gambling going on!"
