    Ever eaten there? It's tasty. Good chef, not pretending to be authentic to anything except himself.

    Default The Law...

    Report Counterfeit Trafficking in Handbags, Watches and the like right here: https://apps.cbp.gov/eallegations/

    Here's the International Anti Counterfeiting Coalition: http://www.iacc.org/

    And the Federal Law:

    Federal Criminal Intellectual Property Statutes

    18 U.S.C. § 2320


    Effective March 16, 2006; current as of March 1, 2007

    (a) Whoever intentionally traffics or attempts to traffic in goods or services and knowingly uses a counterfeit mark on or in connection with such goods or services, or intentionally traffics or attempts to traffic in labels, patches, stickers, wrappers, badges, emblems, medallions, charms, boxes, containers, cans, cases, hangtags, documentation, or packaging of any type or nature, knowing that a counterfeit mark has been applied thereto, the use of which is likely to cause confusion, to cause mistake, or to deceive, shall, if an individual, be fined not more than $2,000,000 or imprisoned not more than 10 years, or both, and, if a person other than an individual, be fined not more than $5,000,000. In the case of an offense by a person under this section that occurs after that person is convicted of another offense under this section, the person convicted, if an individual, shall be fined not more than $5,000,000 or imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both, and if other than an individual, shall be fined not more than $15,000,000.
    (b)
    (1) The following property shall be subject to forfeiture to the United States and no property right shall exist in such property:
    (A) Any article bearing or consisting of a counterfeit mark used in committing a violation of subsection (a).
    (B) Any property used, in any manner or part, to commit or to facilitate the commission of a violation of subsection (a).
    (2) The provisions of chapter 46 of this title relating to civil forfeitures, including section 983 of this title, shall extend to any seizure or civil forfeiture under this section. At the conclusion of the forfeiture proceedings, the court, unless otherwise requested by an agency of the United States, shall order that any forfeited article bearing or consisting of a counterfeit mark be destroyed or otherwise disposed of according to law.
    (3)
    (A) The court, in imposing sentence on a person convicted of an offense under this section, shall order, in addition to any other sentence imposed, that the person forfeit to the United States--
    (i) any property constituting or derived from any proceeds the person obtained, directly or indirectly, as the result of the offense;
    (ii) any of the person's property used, or intended to be used, in any manner or part, to commit, facilitate, aid, or abet the commission of the offense; and
    (iii) any article that bears or consists of a counterfeit mark used in committing the offense.
    (B) The forfeiture of property under subparagraph (A), including any seizure and disposition of the property and any related judicial or administrative proceeding, shall be governed by the procedures set forth in section 413 of the Comprehensive Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Act of 1970 (21 U.S.C. 853), other than subsection (d) of that section. Notwithstanding section 413(h) of that Act, at the conclusion of the forfeiture proceedings, the court shall order that any forfeited article or component of an article bearing or consisting of a counterfeit mark be destroyed.
    (4) When a person is convicted of an offense under this section, the court, pursuant to sections 3556, 3663A, and 3664, shall order the person to pay restitution to the owner of the mark and any other victim of the offense as an offense against property referred to in section 3663A(c)(1)(A)(ii).
    (5) The term "victim", as used in paragraph (4), has the meaning given that term in section 3663A(a)(2).

    Findings

    Pub. L. 109–181, § 1(a)(2), Mar. 16, 2006, 120 Stat. 285, provided that: “The Congress finds that—
    “(A) the United States economy is losing millions of dollars in tax revenue and tens of thousands of jobs because of the manufacture, distribution, and sale of counterfeit goods;
    “(B) the Bureau of Customs and Border Protection estimates that counterfeiting costs the United States $200 billion annually;
    “(C) counterfeit automobile parts, including brake pads, cost the auto industry alone billions of dollars in lost sales each year;
    “(D) counterfeit products have invaded numerous industries, including those producing auto parts, electrical appliances, medicines, tools, toys, office equipment, clothing, and many other products;
    “(E) ties have been established between counterfeiting and terrorist organizations that use the sale of counterfeit goods to raise and launder money;
    “(F) ongoing counterfeiting of manufactured goods poses a widespread threat to public health and safety; and
    “(G) strong domestic criminal remedies against counterfeiting will permit the United States to seek stronger anticounterfeiting provisions in bilateral and international agreements with trading partners.”

    OK, so the key for success here is for NH to get it.

    NYPD has nearly shut down the illegal vendors on and around Canal Street. Yesterday there were a few disappointed looking tourists walking about in search of "bargains", but the place was like a ghost town (the cold weather may have had something to do with that).

    Maybe now NYPD can move the "Eye in the Sky" to Vesey Street and start the clean up down that way.
