I have sinned against the LEGO Gods.

IIRC China does not recognize US or European copyright law (and why would you amirite?), so it's beyond easy to bootleg stuff there (since China underpays many of its workers, hiring those workers to make bootlegs is dirt cheap). Gibson guitars, movies, shoes, and yes, LEGO are all bootlegged. 

Retailers outside of China aren't supposed to buy them, but many do it anyway, and besides, ordering as a private citizen directly from China is super easy anyway. 

I'm sure this doesn't cover all LEGO bootlegs everywhere, but from what I understand that's the general industry. Anyone more in the know is free to chime in to correct me, however.
