‘Fake’ Products Soar in Popularity: China

Not Just Bags & Watches

Not just limited to imitation Louis Vuitton Handbags and Rolex Watches, the “Culture of Fake” in China is soaring in Popularity across a whole spectrum of Consumer Goods.

Tough Times

In tougher economic times when “The Real Thing” is increasingly out of reach of your average Chinese consumer, many are taking to “ShanZhai” (as the culture of fake/imitation goods has been called) products which its proponents insist are “Just as Good”.

Intellectual Property Rights

This will present a large problem for International Brands, who have been looking to enforce their intellectual property rights in China, as these ShanZhai” brands grow in popularity in their own right.

Will SQNY replace SONY?

Will ADADAS (or ADIDOS) outsell ADIDAS?

Will KFG move more chicken that KFC?
