Request Description

She examines the dress carefully, so she can design a dress pattern to duplicate it. She duplicates the dress exactly, and sews the dress in several sizes to sell in her store for a lower price. Then she returns the dress to the store where she bought it for a full refund. Has Marion acted ethically?

B. Yes, because she is competition is fair in a capitalist society

C. Yes, the store was not hurt because the designer store’s customers would not go to her store anyway.
