They've been talking about the Silk Street Market crackdowns a lot here lately... what's really funny is that they are completely concentrating on the crackdowns at that one extremely tourist-oriented market.

Meanwhile, there's a local market in every neighborhood selling the same counterfeit stuff and no one bats an eye. In fact, there is an outdoor market visible from my apartment window.
The general attitude here is that the "poor Silk Street vendors" are being singled out because that's where the "rich tourists" shop.

Even the big market about 15 minutes north of Silk Street where the "rich expats" shop has been completely left alone. (Presumably because it isn't as visible to people who are only here for a few days- like IP lawyers for major brands.)
