uhm.you do know that without the fakes problem #2 wouldn't so readily exist.The problem is not with the fakes being bought and sold. The problem is when that guy who spent $300 on a fake tries to sell it for $1500. I don't have a problem with the fakes when everyone knows it's a fake.
Fakes are here to stay. I can live with that. Fact is, anybody who can afford to spend any amount of their income on something as inconsequential as a guitar or watch, or a handbag, or whatever, is way better off than most of the citizens of this planet. Is it cool that they're getting ripped off? No, but is it the end of the world? Hardly.
That's hilarious. Is it a sentence? No. Is it intelligible? No. Should we hand the program over to you? No.
Did you have, like, a point?
A replica is sold as a replica, or never sold. It is usually made from high grade woods and electronics, and can be comparable to the real thing.
A fake is sold as the genuine product using low grade components. Attention to detail is commonly low. They are usually priced too good to be true.
