Chinese ‘app store’ lets you install pirated iPhone apps — without jailbreaking

VB - Chinese “app store” 7659.com is using Apple’s own bulk enterprise licensing technology to distributed pirated apps to Chinese iPhone and iPad users, completely free.

The site, which is only available within China unless you spoof your location via a proxy server, offers a wide selection of iPhone and iPad apps. In just a few moments, I found Final Fantasy V, a $16 iPad game; Badland, a newish $4 app; Le Vamp, a $2 game for iPhone and iPad, and many others. (Apple, Apps, iPhone, Phones, Software)

This really isn't on. One of the biggest potential exports of the West are our media IPs and products, and if China steal these from us, how can we justify continuing to buy their products at a trade deficit?
The games industry in particular could find new life in an open and honest Chinese market, and it's a shame things like this are robbing developers of the reward for their labour.
