They are not made by Arduino.cc (Arduino is open source and actually encourages other people to make the boards – they just ask that people call it Arduino compatible in the US — because they own the Arduino trademark here — while outside the US even that isn’t required). Consider the ones from Arduino.cc to be part equipment costs and part donation to the project for future development – the Chinese made ones generally work just the same though.

If you click on the photo on the link you posted you will actually see ‘Made in China’ so they are legally presenting themselves as not Arduino.cc which are labeled Made in Italy.
