It does not matter if it is counterfeit handbags, batteries, shoes, shampoo or music CDs, if gangsters can make money selling them, they will do it. The LAPD arrested another gangster selling fakes in the city of LA. The gangster was from the Geer Gang and was already on probation for other crimes.
More and more gang members have turned to selling counterfeit trademarked merchandise. Intellectual property investigations have lead to the arrest of some really bad people. Until the demand slows for counterfeit goods, the gangsters will continue to engage in trademark counterfeiting and piracy. People need to stop buying fakes and that is the only way to combat counterfeiting.
