News: Making It & Faking It

Posted by admin on Apr 9, 2012 8:20:48 AM
The topic of counterfeiting isn't new to Americans. Anyone who has visited a major city has likely been accosted by a few offers to buy a handbag or watch. The items—sold by unscrupulous-looking individuals at outrageously low prices—were labeled as luxury brands but were obvious fakes.

It’s likely that the majority of the public lives in ignorance or apathy toward the counterfeit trade, relegating the problem to a few products, sold by a few vendors and purchased by a few consumers who are well aware of what they are buying. What some might be surprised to know, however, is that the counterfeit trade extends well beyond street vendors and can yield more severe consequences than a cheaply constructed bag.
