Think about it...you're buying HOCKEY PRODUCTS (it's not a big market where counterfeiters can go unnoticed, trust me) designed and manufactured to North American comapny policies and standards. It doesn't matter WHERE it's manufactured.
Counterfeiting is rampant overseas. I have heard (first hand knowledge) of instances where the counterfeit product is made in the same factory as the original.

As for child labor and sweat shops. It's a different culture. If the kids weren't working at a factory they'd be working on a farm or in a local market. They aren't forced to work, they want to work. You sweat your tail off in even the most modern facilities over there so almost every factory could be called a sweat shop.
