To the question of knock-offs existing legitimately as an option for the price sensitive, using the analogy of a fast food meal compared to a fine dining experience, or a classic sports car compared to a modest compact, here is the key difference: the buyer is not being duped into believing they are purchasing the higher quality alternative.”
