Google's Letter From Chinese Ad Partners Demanding Compensation Is Fake

That letter Google received from 27 Chinese companies demanding compensation if they pull out of the country was as authentic as the average Louis Vuitton handbag, as it turns out.

Bloomberg is reporting Gao Min from Google ad sales as saying it's "likely a fake", after 22 of the companies mentioned in the letter are claiming they didn't sign it or know anything about it. [NY Times via BusinessInsider]
