Apple Moves Against Knockoffs in New York

If you bought Apple accessories from these stores in New York, Apple is demanding to know who you are and wants the companies to cough up your information. Don't feel bad, they want the names of the crooked suppliers you'll be in good company. eek!

Court records reveal that Apple has already seized unauthorized iPod, iPhone and iPad accessories sold by two stores in the Flushing neighborhood of the New York City borough of Queens, and is now demanding the names of its customers and suppliers. It is also asking one of the defendants -- Apple Story -- to change its name to keep consumers from confusing the unauthorized gear with Apple-sanctioned products.
