The success of Apple Inc.'s iPad isn't just drawing more competition to the tablet market -- it's attracting thousands of counterfeit and knockoff products. On a single day in July, almost 18,000 fakes and clones resembling the iPad and Android devices were available for sale on 23 e-commerce sites, according to MarkMonitor, a San Francisco firm that helps companies protect their brands.
