This probably won’t surprise a lot of you, but in South East Asia it is quite easy to purchase counterfeit goods, especially clothing. I was under the impression that this was a problem for big brands like Nike and Calvin Klein, but it would appear that no matter who you are, if you design tees then you could get ripped too. It seems that a lot of people that post to Emptees are getting ripped by people from Indonesia, Thailand and other SEA countries. I don’t want to tar all these people with the same brush, there are a lot of people in SEA that aren’t ripping designs or stealing, but it’s clearly a problem and I have no idea how they can deal with it.

Jud from ShirtFight recently spotted one of his own designs that had been ripped on eBay, but instead of getting mad (actually, he may have got mad, I don’t know), he decided to buy one of ‘his’ tees, and there he is in the pic wearing it. I’d say that it’s a cheap way of getting your designs made, but as Jud owns a tee company, I think he could have managed it himself.
