Earlier today ComiXology, in a partnership with iCv2, launched over 100 online storefronts capable of selling digital comics for independent retailers.

Apple has quickly and quietly moved against knock off stores in the Queens borough of New York City. The stores, named Apple Story and Fun Zone Inc, both owned by New York resident Janie Po Chiang, have allegedly been selling counterfeit iPad, iPhone, and iPod accessories labeled as genuine Apple products.
