So long as these poor environments are not being forced upon people, and they are in fact voluntarily joining them as a rational person, then it is to be believed that they are better-off for it, and that your business is akin to charity. Just pointing out the flaw in the moral argument, otherwise I agree. The problem with regard to counterfeits is the lack of information alone. I don't support the right for a product to claim sole ownership of a look, but I would enforce full product information as a prerequisite to sale.
