product imitation

a MARKET POSITIONING strategy involving the introduction of a product which emulates or copies a product already on the market (in so far as it is legally possible under PATENT and TRADEMARK laws). Product imitation may be used to exploit high-volume market segments or to compete with new innovative products in a rapidly growing market (see PRODUCT LIFE CYCLE).
