- Can I legally sell knock off products?
Claudius du PlooyBusiness Law
It is legal to sell knock offs so long as they are not a direct copy of the genuine article. You can copy the form, the fabric type and basic shape, for example, but foregoing inclusion of any trademarks.It would be best to ask the original creator for permission to replicate the base design of their products in order to create your own product
