FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
IS IT ILLEGAL TO SELL REPLICA CHANEL?
Yes, it is illegal to sell replica Chanel.
Selling replica Chanel breaks a number of laws. Anti-counterfeiting laws prohibit the sale of counterfeit goods. Counterfeiting can be defined as an act of producing or selling look-a-like goods or services bearing trademarks without receiving authorization from the owners of the trademarks. For example, selling a bag that isn't made by CHANEL, while bearing the CC trademarks without CHANEL's permission, is a fake and therefore a counterfeit.
Merely offering to sell a replica is against the law. Hosting or being a proprietor associated with businesses that offer sales of replica goods are also liable under the contributory infringement laws.
Governing agencies also have strict rules against replica products. Prosecution, severe penalties, monetary damage awards to the trademark owner, and a multitude of civil resolutions are commonly faced by those committing acts of counterfeiting.
Selling fakes online is a crime. Individuals who violate the laws by manufacturing, importing, distributing, offering for sale, or selling replicas are taken seriously by law enforcement.
