One of the benefits of capitalism is that everyone has an equal shot at getting rich. (Theoretically, anyway.) All you really need is a great business idea.

Problem is, most of the great ideas are already taken, and it’s really, really hard to come up with ideas of your own. So, another¬†benefit of capitalism is that you can steal someone else’s great idea, change it juuuuust enough to skirt a lawsuit, and go into business. You likely won’t get rich, and you probably won’t be able to sleep at night, but at least you’ll make a living! A living that’s entirely based on tricking people, but a living nonetheless.

Here are 15 brand knockoffs that hardly even tried to be different. Necessity is the mother of invention. And “not really giving a crap about anyone else” is the mother of the ripoff. (via Bored Panda.)
