Why do people knowingly buy fake name brands? Don't they know it is
crap and will not wear like the original?
I can answer this one.
I saw a documentary about the rife bootlegging going on in China.
All of the band name stuff is made in China anyway, the knock-offs
are coming out of the legit factories, so there is no physical
difference between the products. (Jewellery may be different).
The main difference is that the knock-offs (that aren't really
knock-offs), cost a lot less.
I don't condone the practice, but companies like Reebok etc. when
questioned about it are silent, if they piss of the Chinese
factories, they have to make their products themselves.
