CURRENT ARTICLES: (9/10) Savannah, Ga. — U.S. Customs and Border
Protection at the port of Savannah recently seized 8,154 packages of socks
with counterfeit NFL “Colts” name and helmet logos as well as
counterfeit “Cotton” logos.


On September 2, CBP officers discovered the shipment of fake merchandise
in a container that was selected for examination. A total of 24,462 pairs
of socks were seized. The shipment had a total domestic value of $4,203
and a manufacturers suggested retail price of $165,998.


The importation of counterfeit goods into the United States is a growing
concern. In fiscal year 2008, the domestic value of goods seized for
intellectual property rights (IPR) violations increased by 38.6 percent to
$272.7 million from $196.7 million in FY 2007.


“As the primary U.S. border enforcement agency, CBP plays a key role in
IPR enforcement,” said John Porter, area port director in
Savannah. “Counterfeiting reduces the revenue of U.S. companies and hurts
the economy. CBP is committed to combating the illegitimate trade in fakes
and potentially unsafe products by seizing counterfeit and pirated goods
at our borders, identifying business practices linked to IPR theft and
working with our enforcement counterparts to eliminate IPR fraud.”


To address the ongoing threat to domestic industries and the need to
identify and interdict counterfeited goods, CBP works closely with private
industry, other U.S. government agencies and foreign governments to stem
the flow of illegal goods, to protect consumers and the economy.
