It's a big deal trying to keep track of counterfeiters, mostly not from diy people, but companies who put out products that are hard to tell the difference from the real thing and any warranty problems fall back on Klipsch. And also what you said because it gives you a bad feeling if you thought it was theirs to find out it was a copy with no warranty. They keep more than one lawyer busy chasing down these things and shutting them down. Don't know if it is still on the main website but at one time there was a long list of not approved vendors that were supposedly not selling anymore, they tend to pop back up. Eventually we (wife and I) will be selling some Klipsch gear so I know what they go thru with counterfeiters, we have been working with them for probably a year now. They know we were making things with their name on it, we didn't hide it or advertise it. It was all things they did not make or sell and most of it was given away at Pilgrimages, well over 200 etched glasses and other things over a couple of years so it was not like we were in it to make money. But we now have a chance to add some things in there upcoming new gear store as an approved vendor. The whole idea started because there was not much out there to officially be had, I know I would have bought some different things, but it was never in stock in my size 2x so I started making my own. To me there is no reason for anyone who wants to wear or have something with a Klipsh name or log to not be able to get it, I wear my shirts all the time.
