Xiangyang Market Will Close Down Forever, But Not Because of Counterfeit Goods

Winnie Wang wrote an article for the Shanghai Daily about the end of Xiangyang market, Shanghai's hotbed of counterfeit goods, where inspection was as inauthentic as many of the goods there, despite the banner that was put above the market. The reason for closing the market down is quite prosaic; to make way for the city's traffic construction plans. The question is where will the salesmen of counterfeit goods set up shop after June 30th, when their pirates' nest is destroyed?
