What’S in a Logo? Exploring Motivations to Purchase Counterfeit Brands
The purpose of this research is to explore the motivational factors underlying consumers’ counterfeit brand purchases. In three studies, we demonstrate that individuals whose attitudes serve primarily a social-adjustive function (i.e., high self monitors) are more likely to purchase counterfeit luxury goods compared to those whose attitudes serve primarily a value-expressive function (i.e. low self monitors). Also, high self monitors are more sensitive than low self-monitors to the extent to which the counterfeit conveys status.
