If you are a counterfeiter, you really do not want to be doing business in the state of Oregon because the Beaverton PD and Oregon DOJ will catch up with you sooner or later as so many counterfeiters all over the state of Oregon have recently learned.
The Beaverton PD and Oregon DOJ have formed a taskforce that has been targeting all types of intellectual property crimes all over the state. Their efforts have lead to countless arrests and successful prosecution
They have worked on high level cases involving the importation and distribution of large quantities of counterfeit merchandise and cases involving street sales of counterfeit goods. They have adopted an “all angles” approach and they have focused their efforts on all aspects of the sales and distribution of counterfeit goods.
Through their exhaustive efforts, they have developed numerous sources and information on other serious crimes beyond counterfeiting and piracy. Their recent efforts targeted a subject who was plastering Craigslist.org with various offers for counterfeit goods.
They arranged a quick sting in a local parking lot and had somehow convinced the subject to bring his entire stock of counterfeit merchandise with him. They have been incredible at doing this. Unfortunately for the subject, when he arrived with all his pirated products, he was immediately greeted by some of Oregon’s finest!
The efforts in Oregon being lead by the Beaverton PD and Oregon DOJ are extremely impressive and have clearly made a dent in the counterfeit sales in their great and very green state!
