Couple Arrested for Selling Counterfeit Items Online

 

A federal court in South Carolina has accused the owners of Fakegifts.com of selling counterfeit items over the Internet.

Fakegifts.com sold what they called "replicas" of expensive items like Rolex watches and Mountblanc pens. However, the government says that the difference between a replica and a counterfeit is a matter of semantics.

This is the first time an Internet site has been sued for producing counterfeit items. "There's nothing unique about the Internet other than its being a mode to getting the product to the public," says the attorney handling the case.
