However toplay devils advocate, that would be like saying a $1000 TV can be gotten from a guy selling them in an alley off the back of a truck for $500... so why pay the $1000? Its still not ethical (or even legal in this case) However it happens all the time... just goes to show the magic community is not exempt from consumer behavior. Same with buying knock off Nike sneakers ar a flea market... happens all the time, and in that case, its even supported by the community as an in demand item. The key to minimizing knock offs is for magic inventors to offer extreme quality at a very enticing price and make it widely available. Low quality knock offs only thrive when there is a disconnect between that. I fully understand some inventors desire to limit what they offer to a select qty - the idea is to create value and exclusiveness. that's great - but that's a HUGE "come knock me off" flag that gets waved. But like I said - it happens all the time in business - its not something that can be avoided without costly legal protection. [/quote]
