Knockoffs : Okay or Harmful for American Companies?

Copy catting products and making knockoffs  for profit. That’s what I’m trying to wrap my head around today. Is it theft, sly business, is it accepted as a norm, is it ok if you can’t afford the real product? I feel like a civil discourse is needed to help me really formulate what drives it. Action Camera Knockoffs We have all seen product knockoffs. For years the GoPro has had […]
