Designing a New Policy For Knock Off Fashion
New York City officials destroyed tons of new, unworn clothing and footwear last year that had been seized in raids on counterfeit label operations, abandoning a practice of giving knockoff garments to groups that help the needy.
Some heads need to get knocked together over this. I understand perfectly why copyright holders would have concerns, but if those concerns can be met adequately then of course the clothes should be used. Destroying perfectly good clothes? How terrible.
