The people involved in carrying out these kinds of activities are known as “brand assassins”, who blatantly infiltrate upon the hard-earned and well established intellectual property of the brand / product over a prolonged period of time. Though the involved intermediaries have limited roles to play, serving just as a platform of utilization & hosting of the process for facilitation; there exists a huge legal divide which hinders their capacities.
