So I've been looking @ chinese inventory to expand my venture, I've had some good success but I keep running into an issue, wondering if anyone has some insight for me: I keep finding items that are of interest to me, but I find out they have a brand name on them. Sometimes the brand is a company (usually US) that has an established public presence and/or sells their product, so It's pretty safe to assume theyre illegal bootlegs However, a fair amount of time the brand has no obvious public precense, some might have a fb page with little to nothing going on with it besides the brand name and maybe a few pictures, and other times I can't seem to find any info on this brand or its maker at all If a chinese item has a brand on it but I can't find a "legitimate" distributor, is it possible/normal for the chinese manf. to have just created some random brand to try and sell it better, though it actually has no one in legal control of it? ie no patents/copyrights/etc and thus safe to buy? how do yall handle this, what are the rules you follow?
