We’ve all seen them and we’ve all laughed at them. We’re talking about these blatant knockoff products!
Usually made in China, we’ve surely encountered some of these funny counterfeits with not-so-subtle names such as Abibas, Calvin Klain, Dolce & Banana, Niek, Rolax, and many others.
Technically, these products fall under piracy and are therefore illegal. So it’s somehow surpising to see how rampant they are in the market despite the fact that we have many existing laws opposing the selling and manufacturing of such products in the first place.
Of course, the catch here is that while they are sold much cheaper than original brands, these counterfeits obviously have substandard quality and purchasing them means supporting theft.
Check out these laughable knockoffs below and tell us what you think.

In a Bored Panda feature, we learn that 79% of all companies are affected by product piracy and that “more than half (51.66%) of all counterfeits come from China, but (some are) also produced in Southeast Asia (9.04%) and Eastern Europe (4.47%).”
The article further tells us that “the production costs in these countries are low due to the use of cheap source materials and poor working conditions.”
