Angry Birds is not going away. It's penetrated the zeitgeist in a way that compares to Pac-Man, Tetris and Super Mario Bros. And now there's a retail shrine going up in China dedicated to Rovio's feuding piggies and birdies. According to BetaBeat's report, the store will be undercutting those profiting from the heavily bootlegged brand's unlicensed merchandise by getting ideas from the contraband t-shirts and plush toys that sell well in the People's Republic. How long do you think it'll be before such a store opens in the U.S.?
