Consumers’ Perceived Counterfeit Detection: a Construct With Formative Measurement Nature and Its Relevance to Construct Validation

In the context of deliberate counterfeit consumption, we theoretically justify the proposed construct of “consumers’ Perceived Counterfeit Detection by important others” (PCD). We emphasize PCD’s formative measurement as opposed to its reflective measurement nature; empirically demonstrate PCD’s existence according to our initial results; and describe its relevance to construct validation and unethical behavior.
