Defending Retailers of Counterfeit Goods Through E-commerce
If with intent to defraud, you used the Internet to communicate – in whole or in part – about the sale of counterfeit goods, or transmitted any offer and acceptance about transactional terms over the devices of wire, cable, or other electronic means between points of origin and reception (for instance, via the World Wide Web), you could be charged with selling counterfeit goods online. Penalties for this offense, like those for sales of counterfeits in shops, escalate according the value of the faked items. If their value exceeds one thousand dollars, you face 3 to 7 years’ imprisonment. And if their value exceeds one hundred thousand dollars, you could go to prison for a term of 5 to 15 years. In addition, a judge will order seizure and destruction of all counterfeit goods produced for online sale.
Nowadays, law enforcement is using every available tool to locate and intercept counterfeit goods sold online, deploying their best agents to prosecute violators – which is why you need the best possible defense.
