The IPKat received today an unsolicited email which carried the following text:

We only sell premium watches. There's no battery in these replicas just like the real ones since they charge themselves as you move. The second hand moves JUST like the real ones, too. These original watches sell in stores for thousands of dollars. We sell them for much less.

We also carry all top quality Louis Vuitton handbags!
Under the Frequently Asked Questions the site offered the following nuggets of wisdom:
1. Why would I want to purchase a replica watch?
For most people, it is because they want to look good, but are unwilling to pay very high prices. For other people, it is because they have an authentic watch, but want to purchase something identical for insurance and personal security. And for other people, it is because they are collectors who want to have a wide variety of watches on display.

9. Where can I go if I want to purchase a real watch?
If you want to purchase a authentic watch and not a replica, please locate only an authorized dealer.
At the bottom of each page is the legend “Copyright © 2005”. The IPKat is so pleased to see that the website owner expects other to respect its copyright. But what of a little respect for the trade mark and design rights of LOUIS VUITTON, TAG HEUER and ROLEX, he wonders? Merpel is still stunned by the audacity of the claim that these fakes perform valuable social functions, such as enabling purchasers of genuine watches to have “something identical for insurance and personal security”. Can a mugger tell the real thing from the replica before he’s beaten its owner over the head and ripped it from his wrist?

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
