Which is correct?
Gray market products are either _________, distributed outside the authorized channels, or both.
Either word is acceptable. I prefer “inauthentic” but “unauthentic” is correct as well. The gray market is the collective system of unauthorized sales channels for products. Gray market software, for example, may be pirated.
