    Unfortunately they copy Lego parts exactly. In some cases in the same colours as Lego makes. Even if the customisers make the part in a new colour first, and Lego then introduce it in that colour, they are a pain if they turn up. I've had some of their dark green leaves sold to me as genuine in a BL order.

    If they were made in China they'd be called fakes.

    I'd consider these to be fake too. And shudder at the thought of them blending into real Lego stock if tan ones were officially released as CCC had happen.

    They do make nice different color parts, which for the MOC'er would be attractive. But even though they are US based if Lego won't go after them it's the same situation as the counterfeiters in China.
