Alibaba’s Jack Ma Says Fakes Are Better Than Originals

Unless we are talking about boobs, I can't really think of a product where fakes are better than the original. It sounds like this guy is just trying to justify knock offs.

"The problem is the fake products today are of better quality and better price than the real names," he said during a speech on Tuesday at Alibaba’s headquarters in Hangzhou. "They are exactly the [same] factories, exactly the same raw materials but they do not use the names." The remarks were an apparent riposte to longstanding criticism that Alibaba has tolerated the sale of counterfeit goods on platforms such as Taobao.
