Ralph Lauren Clothes To Be Saved From Counterfeiters

Press release from: jennyandrews

A crackdown in China has led to counterfeit Ralph Lauren clothes and other designer products to be removed from shops and markets.

Although piracy has been a very lucrative market in China for some time, the country is trying to improve its image and international relationships and therefore is coming down on counterfeiters of designer goods, as well as pirated DVD’s and other products. See for more information.

In the past, designer knock-offs were sold openly in the streets of Shanghai. However, this was the first target of China’s blow against piracy. This comes a short time after Starbuck’s, the incredibly popular American coffee chain, won a lawsuit against a shop that went by the Chinese translation of the name.

Although these counterfeit versions are very popular among the Chinese as well as tourists, the country is still adamant about obtaining control of the industry. However, this will be difficult considering that the production of these products is actually supported on the local scale of government. For this reason, it is though the distributors will simply sell their products in a more discreet nature. Stopping the practice altogether will take time and a lot of effort.

While some of the products are relatively accurate replications, others feature misspelled names and incorrect designer logos. However, it certainly does not seem to stop the demand of the property.

Designer products are not the only items pirated at increasing rates, though. The United States Motion Picture Association estimates as much as 95% of its members’ products were the victim of piracy in China at a huge monetary loss. While these movies are not sold as openly in Shanghai as they were before the crackdown, they are still available for purchase. Officials plan to continue the concentrated effort in eliminating the piracy in China until it is under control.
