Customers think that they're buying an original product, but end up with a low-quality copy instead.
Counterfeits prevent genuine sales. Fighting infringement costs time & money.
By 2022, counterfeiting is projected to drain $4.2 trillion from the global economy.
Avoid buying pins from websites where counterfeits are commonly found. Buy directly from artists or authorized retailers.
If you see a suspected counterfeit, either online or in person, please contact the original artist with the details so they can investigate.
Now that you're a counterfeit expert, spread the word! Educate your friends & social media followers so they can help, too.
