700 Pieces of Counterfeit MLB Gear

Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents seized more than 2,700 items of counterfeit Major League Baseball merchandise worth $80,000 from Bay Area vendors, agency representatives said today.

The merchandise includes phony T shirts, counterfeit baseball hats and beanies, tote bags and pennants, said agents with ICE Homeland Security Investigations team.

ICE spokeswoman Virginia Kice said agents seized the merchandise over the course of the past week from vendors as vendors tried to cash in on the Giants World Series run.

The fake MLB merchandise is imported primarily from China and it usually pretty easy to spot, Kice said.

do encounter some very sophisticated and high quality counterfeits, Kice said. in a lot of cases, you can look at the way it put together the stitching, the logos and tell that it not genuine. said some items had names of prominent athletes misspelled or logos sewn on upside down.

Although most people see intellectual property theft as a victimless crime, Kice said that a false assumption.

The phony merchandise delivers shoddy and sometimes dangerous goods to unsuspecting buyers, she said. The proceeds often go to fund other criminal activities and Kice said the sales could rob Americans of good paying jobs.

There have been no arrests so far, but Kice said the investigation is ongoing.

That second to last paragraph implies that genuine licensed Giants merchandise is manufactured domestically by well paid workers, as opposed to by Chinese that are paid poorly in China. I don own any genuine licensed Giants merchandise to check for the made in the USA label, but I suspect that there is little difference in the providence of either product.

And since when did ICE, a federal agency, care about protecting American jobs? It been the official policy of the federal government, under both Republican and Democratic administrations, to offshore American jobs as quickly as possible for the last thirty years.
