    Law Enforcement must have one helluva Christmas, with all the seized goods from other sources too i.e flea markets ,private sales etc.

    While I agree wholeheartly that counterfeiting is wrong and steals in effect from the rightful owner,Im just not so sure the remedy is necessarily the most effective answer.

    I think undercover agents would work best, and then the fine so great it would automatically be a deterent to set up a website and sell fake stuff.

    It does seem like an overwhelming problem I agree, kinda reminds me of a joke my son made recently...

    You know where they caution while watching a DVD or music online with a message like this:
    "You wouldnt steal a car ,would you"? ,and follow with a stronger caution ,from the Feds..
    Anyway the joke among some young people  in response to

    You wouldnt steal a car would you? was
    I would if I could download it  lol
