Top 5

List are always fun. So here, for all of us IP-people, the top 5 of seized counterfeit goods by US Customs and Border Patrol, and their respective retail value:

1. Electronics ($101.2 million retail value) – did you have an iPhone or an iPhoney?

2. Shoes ($97 million retail value) – yes, that’s your Louboutins, Jimmy Choos and Uggs.

3. Drugs ($25.6 million retail value) – so much fake Viagra on the market, and you are wondering why you are still getting spam?

4. CD’s / DVD’s ($35 million retail value) – yes, we were amazed too; people still buy cd’s?

5. Electronics ($126.3 million retail value) – wash them a few times and you will notice the difference. The difference in color and shape, that is.
