Craig Richards addressed his current Fabric residency in a new statement, in which he outlined his changing position at the famed London nightclub.

Clearly, the concept of copyright doesn't really exist in China as a nightclub sporting the same name and logo as famed London nightclub fabric has been spotted operating in the country.
