Aren't you a pilot though? My mistake if you are not.

If you were in these factories where extras runs were being manufactured alongside legitimate orders, I'll assume you are in some way connected to the clothing/fashion/fragrant industry.

If so, don't you have a responsibility to inform the original holders of the IP and trademark?

Only as a hobby, not professionally!

These trips were done on vacations and one time I was with a friend who buys piping from China, he showed me when we traveled to Guangzhou.

I think I may have not explained properly; what I don't mean is that real and fake are mixed in together, then then given to the authorized shops - so you go into Gucci in Dubai Mall and its a fake ( all though that may happen). I have no proof of that.

I'm saying the same material that makes a fake, makes a real shirt or bag, but the way its sold to the population is the difference.

What I mean is that the illusion of quality and "Luxury goods" is all bull**** - ( for clothing, bags, shoes e.t.c - not Swiss watches, cars). These companies lobby and spend until their message is heard and the general public believe it.

I don't know why no-one has suggested it - but there is also the option of getting a second-hand real bag which could be the perfect solution. There are some very well maintained pre-loved bags on the market and might be well within your price range. A friend bought a bag from THE CLOSET | Authentic Designers Handbags in Dubai and recommended them....

He supplied the exact same article in a white paper box for under $50NZ and proceeded to tell me how he had bought his at the same Taiwanese factory that was knocking out the 'Genuine' Honda items. The ONLY difference was the Honda logo and part number on the box. Fact.
Not only is this the norm in industry, this is perfectly legal and legitimate at both ends. You could actually argue that Honda were the criminals in this story...

I rest my case.
As I mentioned, my brother was a buyer etc etc.

He told me of another trip that involved buying a massive quantity of pistons for Holden Black motor V8's (you antipodeans may remember this issue) this was the first iteration of the throttle body injected ones that coincided with the SS Commode.
The reason? Holden had knowingly skimped on the spec for the genuine item and they were failing at less than 60 000 km. He bought his at the very same factory that was making GMH's ("people trust Holdens") at the original spec that was designed before the GM accountants ran the calculator across them and decided to cut costs.

Fake can actually be better than original (if you dont believe me, ask any Harley owner)

Oh my goodness!!!!! Really???
I can’t believe, I’m reading some of the comments on here. Oh puuullllizzzzz!!!! Get off your high horses! How are you gonna judge someone because they are wearing fakes? Not everyone is as minted as y’all to afford the real thing, so if they can afford a fake and it makes them happy, what is the problem here???

Y’all talking about it being illegal, well when I first arrived in Dubai, there was a Dubai travel guide booklet in the hotel. It had a section on Karama, saying that shopkeepers tell customers that the items are fakes before customers buy. I’m thinking if it was illegal then the shop keepers would never mention it being a fake. They would defo lie to you that it is legitimate. So cut them some slack and give them credit for actually openly saying to you that it is a ‘real fake’

Y'all are Posers with a capital P, nuff said!
