Laredo: Capitol of fake jeans and copywright infringement
LAREDO, Texas — What not to wear? Nearly 2,900 pair of fake jeans.
Agents in South Texas have announced the seizure of about $194,000 worth of counterfeit-label jeans.
Customs and Border Protection officials in Laredo on Thursday said the jeans were falsely labeled as Levi Strauss & Co. products. Investigators say the case involves alleged trademark infringement against the San Francisco-based company.
Further details on the commercial shipment of clothing, seized at the World Trade Bridge, were not immediately released.
