A Real Moral Dilemma

In a Scotsman story on Chinese counterfeit golf clubs, Stuart Keith, who studied the problem for a University of Edinburgh dissertation, says there is a "moral dilemma for British consumers" who buy counterfeits

Perhaps of more immediate concern to British golfers, counterfeiting discourages innovation, a blow to handicappers waiting for breakthroughs in golf club technology.

"Sure, a lot of prices for major- brand golf clubs are inflated, but the companies have to be repaid for their innovation otherwise there is no incentive to continue to bring new and better products to the marketplace," Mr Keith said.

Sure, they are overcharging, but it's your job to help pay for the next club as well!
