15 Blatant Brand Imitations That Are Downright Hilarious

Brand piracy is bad. Actually, it's even a crime. Still, these knockoff products are very funny!

Brand piracy has always been a huge problem in the business world – especially for brands that market their products across the globe. It robs them of potential earnings and confuses their buyers. Besides, counterfeit products look almost identical with what

Author Robert Tönnis defines “brand piracy” as “unauthorized usage of protected brand names, labels, designs or description of trade.” Louis Vuitton, Rolex, Cartier, Levi Strauss, and Lacoste are some of the popular brands that are all too often victimized by pirates. These companies lose big chunks of revenue because of counterfeiters who sell similar-looking products which are cheaper. The catch? Well, the non-authetic products are obviously inferior in terms of quality.

Of course, it’s an open secret that China is among the top countries that produce knock-off stuff. They have the capacity to manufacture since they are often commissioned by companies from different countries. As you will see on the pictures below though, China is not alone in creating and patronizing imitations.

Still, I couldn’t help but chuckle in delight as I recently saw these photos of counterfeited brands. Sure, piracy is a serious concern but I can’t stop laughing with how ridiculous and hilarious these copycats are.

You really have to see it to get what I mean. So feel free to scroll down and I’m sure you will be cracking up soon enough.
