- Should there be limits to copying? and
- Would your view change if your living came from a business where knock-off's were ramped?
The commentators made an interesting point.
After clearly distinguishing between the two types types of goods commonly referred to as "knock-offs" -- imitations, copies or inspirations compared to counterfeits, which violate trademark law -- to most, imitation shoes were not as disturbing as imitation purses.
I wonder why?
Could it be the price tag, the visibility or the status each alleged gives the owner? What do you think?
