Nowadays, Counterfeit Goods are “Almost Identical” to the Real Thing

The days of slightly off-kilter fakes found on New York's Canal Street are gone. “We are now at the point where the fakes are almost identical to the real … where they are almost 99 percent identical.” That was the central theme of a recent video posted by Antonio Linares on his Instagram account, Fake Education. The message echoes a markedly controversial one put forth a couple of years ago by Alibaba founder and chairman Jack Ma, who said, “The problem is the fake products today are of better quality and better price than the real names.”
