Trainworx sells their products both through tradional retail channels as well as directly by phone order. When asked "What prompted you to found Trainworx?", Pat Sanders responded "There was a freight car that hadn't been done in N scale that I just had to have and it didn't look like anyone was ever going to make it."
There are exceptions. When Sanda Kan first started developing rolling stock for Life-Like in the late 1980s, no such protection existed. As result the exact same models being imported by Life-Like were also being imported by Industrial Rail (and possibly others). Life-Like was not the only importer to be burned like this. Model Power developed cars in China to duplicate rolling stock toolings made in Europe and the US only to see those same models get imported by Life-Like.
It is perhaps the case that Industrial Rail got permission to import the Sanda Kan models from Life-Like or that Life-Like go permission from Model Power to bring in the PS-1's but it seems more likely that the factory managers in Southern China got greedy. But, you never know.
