I've just been looking through my branded dies, and see that the Tim Holtz/Sizzix dies are Made in China, as are the Sue Wilson (Creative Expressions) dies, and the Spellbinders dies. The only one that is made in the USA is Memory Box. That being the case, I can't think of one other reason for any of them doing this, other than that it is cheaper for them to produce in China.BUT, if they are getting them made cheaply, that is most certainly not reflected in their prices!
I agree, Elle, that small companies cannot nail down people copying their work, but those three companies could most certainly do so. So, maybe there is some legal loophole, such as the re-sizing of a die, for instance, that makes any copyright infringement difficult to pursue?
I would equally say that while looking through the 46 pages,(36 images a page),of dies on Aliexpress , I saw a huge number on there that I have never seen anywhere else before.
