In recent years, Yangcheng Lake hairy crab "nine false one true" on the market has become an embarrassing consensus. With the increasing popularity of Yangcheng Lake crabs, counterfeiting techniques are becoming more and more diversified. From "premature crabs", "bathing crabs", "traveling crabs", "transit crabs" and "relatives crabs", to counterfeit crab anti-counterfeiting rings, counterfeit certificates of origin, counterfeit monopoly stores, and even counterfeit "crabs", one-stop service is industrialized. Offline physical stores, on-line monopoly stores, "Yangcheng Lake hairy crabs" rampant market, but consumers spend a lot of money to buy whether the authentic Yangcheng Lake specialty, only Tianzhi crabs know.
Years ago, local authorities launched a campaign to crack down on the fake Yangcheng Lake hairy crabs. Unfortunately, these crackdowns were lightly lifted and lightly rained, with little effect. On the contrary, the counterfeiting activities took more and more opportunities. The proportion of the authentic Yangcheng Lake hairy crabs became smaller and smaller, up to about 1%. Now, when the autumn crab comes to market, counterfeit Yangcheng Lake hairy crabs are on the top of the media. Looking from the recent public opinion trend, the local government did not act as a soldier, and did not introduce a strong crackdown on counterfeit Yangcheng Lake hairy crabs. People can not help asking, 99% hairy crabs have been counterfeited, Yangcheng Lake why not angry?
Such a large number of Yangcheng Lake hairy crabs are "Li Gui", the root cause is the weak counterfeiting, the relevant departments are bound to blame. There are many factors, such as the low cost of counterfeiting and the high cost of counterfeiting, the dilemma of not blaming the masses, and the worry of "killing the enemy 1,000 and self-destructing 800", and the worry of consumers "killing" the real hairy crabs by mistake. More importantly, it is feared that the local stakeholders and various types of counterfeiting activities have had a vague "ambiguity", they take advantage of the "host" geographical advantages, and illegal counterfeiting deliberately or unintentionally "collude". It's hard to imagine a blatant counterfeit like a "bath crab" without the local people's cooperation. In the eyes of some locals, it may not matter whether the hairy crabs are genuine or fake, but how many cups the hosts share in the fake cake. It can be said that counterfeiting Yangcheng Lake hairy crabs has in fact tied up the interests of many local individuals and groups. In this way, it is inevitable to play a trick on a mouse, and it will inevitably become a "fake fight".
Counterfeit products are illegal. Counterfeiting Yangcheng Lake hairy crabs is no exception. Allowing the fake hairy crabs to be sold in the market will not only harm the rights and interests of consumers and disrupt the market order, but also damage the brand value of Yangcheng Lake hairy crabs, and ultimately hinder the healthy development of the local aquaculture industry. A national geographical indication product 99% is a counterfeit. Therefore, in the face of a large number of hairy crabs are counterfeited cruel reality, Yangcheng Lake has no reason not to be angry, we must show the courage of a strong man to break his wrist, when the hand, but also to consumers at ease, the market to justice, but also authentic Yangcheng Lake hairy crabs to "justice".
