    BT, shouldn’t you be more cautious in wording this report? Don’t you mean that he exposed and sold items purported to be Puma, but allegedly counterfeit? Here you are saying that they are Pumas which are counterfeit, leaving yourselves… somewhat exposed!

    @ S.D. er…BT sez “charged”…. I find that the greater import is that, at last, some of our laws- not to mention international trade treaties- are being respected, and enforced. Good move, as if we do not respect others’ I.P. rights…why should they respect ours?

    Faking brand-named products is the closest you get to a victimless crime. Sometimes the quality is better than the junk they are knocking off.

    This practice has been around from almost the beginning of time .It is wide spread in and around the World. Any name brand product is subject to having counterfeit productions that are distributed and sold to those who ,unable to purchase the real thing are always willing to buy a look alike, in many instances trying to impress friends that the have the real macoy. Many of these fakes are made in Taiwan, China ,India and even the USA.
    The Christmas season seems to be the most ideal time to launch such sales ,when huge profits can be made . Often times the fines are small enough to warrant the try.Flea Markets are filled with these Items in North America .Watches, Shoes, Jewellery,Clothing,and just about anything you can think of that carries a good brand name.

    I wonder who else is selling counterfeit products in Barbados in broad day light and getting away with it? It took international representatives to bring these charges, that says a lot about… see and don’t see.

    Uhm…. this previously published.

    To me its really a family matter as the businessman mentioned is actually Rihanna’s uncle, who has allegedly been selling the knock-off Puma items.

    The charges are being brought against him by Rihanna’s legal representatives of Puma.
