International Trade Commission
Is the End of Fake Louis Vuittons Nigh?
Could fake Louis Vuitton bags be a thing of the past? It's hard to imagine, especially when NYC's Canal Street is still overflowing with them, but a new ruling means the luxury goods company has won another battle. The U.S. International Trade Commission ruled in favor of Louis Vuitton yesterday in an unfair trade case against a “large-scale international counterfeiting and infringing enterprise” profiting from faux iterations of LV's sacred toile monogram. Most importantly, the ruling offers the luxury brand added protection from counterfeiting by a pretty powerful force--the U.S. government.
