    Default Counterfeiting is not a new phenomenon

    I read that the counterfeiting of branded products is not a new concept. Here is an article on The Scented Salmander. It mentions the counterfeiting of Lubin scents in the 19th century.

    No wonder some old ads state, "Accept no substitutes."

    Can anyone add to the history of the House of Lubin?

    It makes me wonder if the bottles they pulled up from the wreck of the steamboat Arabia (Missouri River, 1856) were Lubins - or maybe even cheap substitutes!

    Bluff sounds more and more interesting, too.

    In some times/places, the king would grant a company the right to make a product. Since no other company could compete, legally, making counterfeits was one way to try and make money producing that product.

    Thanks for sharing! It seems that counterfeiting is around since the first incipient elements of market economy started to appear and since fragrances were always a profitable market...
