    Hi guys

    What death-trap am I walking myself into?

    There's so many kickstarter campaigns selling simple products (ie. cat litter box, notebooks, etc.). I noticed some of these products come directly out of AliExpress. There is no proprietary property except for marketing and branding.

    The good thing about kickstarter is that we get a gauge of demand and pricing. We already know our cost based on Aliexpress.

    I saw one product that raised $80k at prices higher than I plan to sell for. Current margins on this product is about 70%, so lots of room for customer acquisition and marketing.

    My question: Can I just rip some of their content (polished photos, testimonial videos) and start using it for my own website selling the exact same product?

    I won't market on kickstarter or course.

    That's fucked up. Take their idea if you want but make your own media.
