COUNTERFEITING – is not a victimless crime

• Counterfeiters and crime syndicates collaborate to support human trafficking and child labor according to statistics. That fake Prada or Gucci handbag was likely made in a sweatshop which are notorious for violating child-labor laws and basic human rights.

• Counterfeiting is trademark infringement, and transacting with counterfeit items is illegal even when the sellers and buyers aren’t aware that the item is a fake.

• Selling and buying fakes is unethical because it deprives designers the fruits of their labor, unfairly putting those profits into dishonest hands.

• Counterfeiters “…do not pay taxes, meaning less money for your city’s schools, hospitals, parks and other social programs,” says the International AntiCounterfeiting Coalition (IACC), a nonprofit organization devoted to protecting intellectual property.
