    In today's Times, the article below. They are not talking about stopping Chinatown fakes, but lower end versions of designer items, or apparently even similar items that couldn't even reasonably be called knockoffs.

    Interesting. I can't see the anti-copying campaign having much effect, though, as there are many heavy-weight retailers that make a lot of money on knock-offs. And knock-offs are an inevitable side effect of fashion-oriented clothing. You're certainly not going to find similar knock-offs of a Savile Row suit, for example.

    Banana Republic is doing their best to cover this one too.
