Jack Ma Claims China's Fakes Are As Good As Originals

Ma claimed manufacturers were getting cleverer

Alibaba’s founder, Jack Ma, has defended the company’s counterfeit problems, by claiming that fake goods in the country are now better than the real thing.China has long suffered with the issue of counterfeit goods making their way into the market, but Ma said that "The problem is that the fake products today have better quality and better prices” than the real products and brands they are based on.He did add that Alibaba was one of the best at fighting the issue of counterfeits, but even so the comments have not gone down well with others trying to tackle the problem.Cao Lei, director of the China E-Commerce Research Center, responded to the comments by declaring Jack Ma’s comments as “inappropriate”.He added that "for some individual cases what he\'s saying might be true, but it\'s wrong to generalize the phenomenon."Ma’s company, Alibaba was recently suspended from the International Anti-Counterfeiting Coalition, after it was judged they were not doing enough to stop fakes being sold on its sites.
