Knock-offs and counterfeits

Minimum 200 words response with reference. Need by 1/20/17

I just came across a recent article that discusses the rise of Knock-offs and counterfeit goods (Rubin, 2016).

In addition to being a legal question this is also a moral question.

If there are no health or safety concerns, where do you stand on knock-offs and counterfeit products?

Many marketplace websites rely on user/crowd reporting to identify Knock-offs and counterfeit goods.

Are these methods effective?
