Knockoff Report™ #613

Hey all, a lot of news this time around. Football season is starting and baseball playoffs are around the corner. So counterfeit sports merchandise and tickets are going to be regular topics in the news. Also, the International Anti-Counterfeiting Coalition (IACC) Fall Meeting is coming in a few weeks. This time they are in Marina del Rey, CA. My hood! It’s nice to be able to walk to a conference. Any folks who want to meet up, or have me as a tour guide, let me know.

Knockoff Report™ #612

Things have been cool this week. A lot of political hub bub and a lot of stuff happening in the world of intellectual property and counterfeits in general. Crazy thing. I know I told you all about my mom’s passing in May but, oddly enough, my wife Nastassia (the fearless CFO of ICPybercrime) lost her mother to cardiac arrest last week. So, you can imagine emotions are running wild here. But we’re still focused on bringing you the best of the latest counterfeit news and also crazy fierce offensive attack on offenders of your brands. Let’s keep things going and get the bastards!
