Is it legal?

Postby startingout » Fri, 02 Sep 2005 12:46 am

Hi to all,
I'm doing bazaar business i wonder is it legal to sell US branded apparels that the label are not strike out? I did saw quite no of retailers in far east plaza selling them with it original label. Are they paying some fees so that it is legal for them to sell?

It is difficult to say if they are original or fake, They could well be seconds, Normally the labels are cut, to show they are not perfect, or old stock. that is why they are so cheap.. Selling old stock is quite legal

Hi Guest,

From what I know, labels r sometimes cut out as it is illegal to be sold in other shops other than the ones authorised (normally their own boutique) to do so. Especially for US brands.

That is quite right! If the label is cut out, you wouldn't know what brand it was would you, What I am saying is the labels are not cut out, but they are clipped. All the containers of branded goods, that come out of Hong Kong are all clipped, to show they are old stock, or factory seconds, but the genuine articals. In this case it is not illegal to set up a business to sell branded goods. The manufacturers normally authories these factory oulets.

I am aware of a woman who has made a fortune buying surplus from the manufacturers (lines that didn't sell, Christmas overstock, stc) and then selling it back into small resale shops. If the tags are clipped I'd guess that is exactly what you have here.
