nickerj1: I always imagined it's a person who works in the slave-labor production plant who steals a couple or produces a couple extra for their day, and then goes to ebay to sell them to feed their family. I'm doing more good in the world by buying the "counterfeit" version. The money spent is actually going to the people who make it.
drunk_bouncnbaloruber: You can get a good CK7 jersey, embroidered or sewen in for $20 plus $30 or so in shipping. Or you can get an official screen printed jersey for $100 plus $20 or so in shipping. Often, they're from the same sweatshop in China. Sorry Roger, the market has spoken, and your products have been judged to be overpriced.By the way, if I order one of these jerseys and it gets seized, can somebody explain how this is not mail tampering, which is an actual federal offense?Also, are the replacement refs going to be seized as counterfeit, too?
BronyMedic: Alphax: I have no idea why 'homeland security' would care about such things.As pointed out before, there's a lot more to the Department of Homeland Security than just the TSA and airport police.Fecal Conservative: Thanks Guys! I feel that the homeland is now more secure from capitalist scum.It's a lot more complicated than that, actually. A lot of counterfeit goods trace back to organized crime, slave labor, and terrorist elements, and the money is funneled back into them from the sales. There's a reason that this stuff is sold on street kiosks and through ebay, and not through legitimate retail storefronts.
