If they didn't have the copyright logo, they're bootlegged.
As a retailer, bootlegged products can get your butt in some serious trouble.
You are extremely lucky you didn't have to go to jail.
Of course, money-wise is a different story.
They always take the money when dealing with a situation like this.
Selling an illegal product therefore the money technically doesn't belong to you.
Over the past 25 years or so, we've seen many loose every thing they had because of it not being a licensed product.
Some were people we knew, so I'm fully aware of what goes down.
Scary big time....
And your life is never the same.
One couple we knew got in trouble over bumper stickers at the Daytona 500.
They lost every thing.....
Except back then, it was the US Marshall's that confiscated their stuff and arrested them.
If we run across some one selling bootlegged products, we try to warn them about the possibilities of getting caught and the repercussions.
But they usually don't believe us.
It's the "Oh it won't happen to me" mentality.
