Black-copies are a serious money-costing problem! Brands invest sources as time, human power and money into the development of new products for the customer. The deadly combination of money and image loss is the result if the customer buys a black-copy instead of the original. The source of the black-copies can be multiple: over-productions of the garment maker, copies by a competitor who has seen the article in retail, even prototypes or phantasy-products with your logo find the way to the buyer.
