As long as they don't pretend they're the real thing, I don't see the big deal.

I bought 'Nature's Promise' organic food brand at the grocery store, assuming it was organic. It was not.

I bought some Izod alligator shirts on eBay, thinking I got a great deal. Then I saw a website comparing the differences between the real and the fakes (stitching and alligator placement) and I realized that I was gulled. I almost bought some old coins on eBay, then I read another website that said that almost all old coins on eBay are Eastern European fakes, to only buy from a dealer who has authenticated them. Live and learn.
