lol you've got some pretty messed up views on counter fitting-(policestate crap aside lol), as long as the guy whos buying it knows its a fake there's no problem, people can wear whatever they want. thats the pure capitalist model in a free and prosperous society, competing with the fakes
. thats whats best for consumers
. when business's lobby governments for laws and enforcement to protect their logos and products, consumers lose(usually via higher prices, fewer options,etc). at the cost of millions to the public in enforcement, so mr. aquilini and the nhl can bring in another million or two. cry me a river. 95% of the louis vutton stuff you see on the streets is fake, anybody care? nope. does louis vutton care? they might have for a while, certainly not now. its just free marketing cause everybodys
got one but every once in a while, like that majestic unicorn, someone comes along with a real one and everybody stops
, and gawks,
like they've just seen god
. but thats their model and why they sell at 5000% markup
if you work at a jersey store you should have some idea of the markup invovled on jerseys or all retail really(min50%) and thats after they've bought it from the canucks/nhl who sold it to them at (60%+cost ) who bought it from reebok who did the same thing and ordered them from some factory in china that sold it to them for like $8/unit and made it for $4.
imitation is the highest form of flattery. be happy they've got the colours on. don't be such a good little consumer, make them work for your money dont just blindly hand it to them. we can all spot the fakes and some look pretty bad lol, but its not your call, the guy who bought it made that decision. ive got an authenic game jersey, it was like $300 from the canucks. my dads got a $40 nockoff flying skate luongo jersey, it actually looks pretty good. and who cares if its not authenic it was $40
