Its a good thing the US immigration and the customs enforcement agency  are at alert and were able to seize as many as they can when they discover counterfeit products.But the wide range and high demand for many product and components play a part in the high rise in counterfeiting.

Yes you are right. But jumping on the cheap stuff can be painful at times because you may end up with disapointment in such a product. Quality product may be expensive but it is always durable.

@Pocharle. You are right, but if we are to pick blame, who is to be blame?

The bad is always attractive. Especially if it is a way to make a quick buck. Alot of people like shortcuts in life.

It just a surprise that while the law is catching up with some counterfeiters ,alot are still rushing in to making counterfeit goods.There might be need for the government to examine why its such an attractive aspect of our society.

@Kunmi, I support your idea on that, the  other side of the task is with the consumers, theyn have to learn to say NO to counterfeits, It just that sometimes consumers don,t have a choice or sometimes will have to make a choice for the counterfeits due to one constrain or the other.

@Anne, I agree with you on that. Sometimes also, Consumers are even ignorrant of what the original name or brand looks like, so they are easily deceived.
