Counterfeiting is illegal. However, there are still many counterfeit ugg boots around. Counterfeiting hurts businesses financially who seek to do the right thing and sell genuine products. It hurts Australian manufacturing jobs because real Euram Ugg boots are made in Melbourne, but fake ones are most likely not.
Obviously, quality sheepskin and craftsmanship cannot be exhibited in cheap knock-offs because high grade sheepskin and Australian labour is expensive. There have been numerous instances where fake ugg boots have hindered foot growth.
