Customer Question
Hello, I was wondering...

Hello, I was wondering is it illegal to sell replica brand name clothing online in Australia?

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

Victoria.

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Well I started this about 3 days ago and have made over $1000 so far, everyone that buys them know they're replica and no complaint thus far.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

No, nothing else.
