Self Established Brand Name, Large Production of Fake, Show Lo finds Unauthentics at the Night Market, So Angry He Wants to Burn Them All

04/22/2008

After Show "Xiao Zhu [Little Pig]" Lo finished up the filming for TV series "Hot Shot," he was over-exhausted and slept a good 18 hours on Sunday. With his busy entertainment career, he still has to deal with the huge production of fake copies of his self established street clothing brand "Stage." This gave him a huge headache, he had once lead his employees into the night markets to catch these unauthentic merchants. He revealed, when he saw those imitation merchandise, he was so angry that he had wanted to burn them all on the spot.

Overly Crazy, Guangzhou With 4 Imitation Stores

In the 2 years that STAGE was released, when Show first found out about the imitation products, he was happy that there were people that admired the brand. But after a while, he saw his fans wearing imitation merchandise, and there were even 4 imitation stores in Mainland China, Guangzhou. This is when he felt that this wasn't going to be the end of it, so felt that this stuff shouldn't continue. He expressed, that he can't deal with the pirating of music albums, but he's his own boss for "STAGE," and the logo is copyrighted, so he decided to start fighting against fake merchandise.

Face-to-Face with the Imitation Stores

Earlier, Show brought his coworkers to Taipei Tonghua night market, visiting around the imitation store to observe the situation. When there were no customers around, he went up to greet the store. The imitation store owner saw him and very guiltily greeted him. The two face-to-face was very awkward. Afterwards Show had his lawyer send him a letter of certification.

Besides actually going into the night markets, Show also went on online auctions to catch unauthentic sellers. First he'd chat with the seller about the merchandise, and then spend money buying these fake items to further investigate at home. Upon seeing how they're not from his own store, the more he sees it, the angrier he gets. As for how much loss these imitation merchandising have cost? Show says, "That's okay, I just don't want "STAGE" to become disreputable."

The Difficulty Of Being Boss, Not Much Profit But Happy

Show said that being boss is hard, but you can comprehend a different domain, so it's not boring. In regards to the net profit for "STAGE," Show has been very low-key about it, saying that it's incomparable to that of being an entertainer, but at least he's happily working for it. Because of his overworking, he, who is scared of death, went to get a physical check up last Saturday, rechecking his liver, stomach, and intestinal tracts' old ulcerations, he said, "Good thing that they're all in pretty good shape."

【2008/4/22 中國時報】自創潮牌 遭大量拷貝 小豬夜市抓盜版衣 氣到想燒光

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

陳于嬙/台北報導

 羅志祥(小豬)忙完電視劇《籃球火》拍攝,過度疲累讓他周日狂睡18小時,演藝事業忙碌的他,近期還得處理自創街頭潮牌「STAGE」遭盜版商大量拷貝,讓他頗傷神,之前還曾率員工到夜市抓盜版,他透露,看到仿冒品,氣得想當場燒光光。

 有夠囂張 廣州4家盜版店

 推出「STAGE」近2年時間,小豬得知有盜版時,一開始覺得開心,竟有人賞臉,不過陸續看歌迷穿盜版衣服,大陸廣州甚至開了4家盜版分店,才讓他深感不妙,自覺不能再縱容下去,他表示,對唱片盜版他沒法處理,但自己是「STAGE」老闆,LOGO已申請專利,決定開始對抗盜版。

 主動出擊 與盜版商面對面

 之前,小豬帶著同事到台北通化夜市逛街,先在盜版店家附近觀察情勢,待沒有顧客時,才登門拜訪,盜版攤商一看到他即心虛打招呼,兩人面對面尷尬不已,之後他委託律師寄發存證信函。

 實地走訪夜市外,小豬更上網拍抓仿冒,先與賣家聊天了解商品,還花錢買盜版衣服回家研究,看著非自家出品的衣服,讓他愈看愈生氣,至於盜版讓他損失多少?小豬說:「是還好,我只是不希望『STAGE』被弄瞎。」

老闆難為 營收不高但開心

 他表示當老闆很難,但可學習到另外一個領域,讓他樂此不疲,對「STAGE」的年營業額,小豬相當低調,指跟演藝事業收入不能比,但至少讓他忙得很開心。工作過度,讓怕死的他於上周六複檢肝、胃及12指腸潰瘍老毛病,他說:「幸好一切狀態都還OK。」

i guess when something is popular, you can't really prevent imitations of it from surfacing. but that means that it's something that attracts buyers; that had to be a plus point. hahas. GO SHOW! GO STAGEEE! (x

i think he's really angry...i would be angry too if i'm him. but i guess some people buy fakes because the original is very expensive..and if you're not from taiwan and you're buying from some other country you can only buy STAGE online..so maybe the prices are further jacked up due to shipping and all that? so i think the fakes' sellers know that this brand is popular and people can't afford it..so there's actually a market for it.

and my point? please xiao zhu, lower the prices for us poor souls! HHAHAHA.

but okay, even if he doesn't lower the prices i don't think i'll ever get the fakes. its so pointless. and so insulting to the designers. tskkkk.

i'm not made of money either.. but i bought his stuff anyway Smile
just in moderation Smile
i, for one, do not think that STAGE is over priced Smile it's actually just about right Smile Stussy, and Bape are pretty 'over priced' too if you wanted to put it that way.. Smile so yeah..
STAGE is street-wear ish.. and so it's trying to be at par with stussy and bape..
so, it's really not overpriced. Smile
and if not street-wear if you compared it with abercrombie or ruehl it's just the same.. and then there's volcom, etc etc.. it's all about the same price Smile

LOL...stina & the rest of you who buys lots of Stage, you guys sound pretty rich to me. I don't think Stage is over-priced, but I don't think the price suits for students tho. WELL, let's say this...Stage's market is pretty wide....so to suit everybody,, they have to have a moderate price. BESIDES, Show wants his clothes to be best quality.

AND what a good boy! He got a checkup! I would give him a hug for doing that,, cuz he really looks DEAD tired when he was filming Hot Shot.

Heh, yeah. Won't do it again. Actually, IDK if it was real or fake...it looked real, lol. But, I obviously didn't get it at the STAGE shop...so would that make it fake?

But, the real ones are SO expensive. I tried ordering a real tshirt for my friend's birthday from that startzee.com place and with shipping, it was like a million dollars, lol. I'm not poor because I have a part time job, but I'm not the type of person who buys like a tshirt for THAT much money.

LOL calm down, i'm not saying you girls are rich and so can afford STAGE stuff. (: i know its possible to save up and all that.

and i know that he does want his brand to be established like Bape etc. so must have high prices to justify quality and brand. i still think the prices are expensive, but i didn't think it was over-priced. its just like Gucci, you know..its expensive but you wouldn't say its overpriced? LOL. i hope you guys understand what i'm saying. i get a bit incoherent sometimes. hahaha. so...too bad i guess. for those who really cannot afford it.

and yeah, i need a job so that i can save money for a STAGE shirt now that its holidays!! when i'm studying i really am a poor soul. ):
