You honestly think Disney cares about the extra $200 per design someone in China is making off extras of their merchandise? If I were them I'd be more worried about the counterfeiters who are stealing their artwork and making unauthorized terrible quality copies. Most companies that do business with China know their stuff will be faked or the manufacturer will make unauthorized quantities for their own personal resale. But the benefit of the cheap labor is greater than the loss of those few extras.starry_solo, do you mean this thread?
I've been following that one, but I didn't see anything about the contract with the factories actually allowing the sale of excess. I guess I'm just skeptical that a corporation like Disney would willingly give up any control over their product and agree to something that would cut into their profits -- especially since some of the overruns seem to be made intentionally (that is, in vast quantities).
