The fight against the importation of counterfeit goods into Romania from China is alive and well. Between January 14 and February 5th, alone, Romanian officials seized upwards of $1.8 million in fake designer goods originating from China and destined for companies in Ukraine, Germany, and Romania, according to World Intellectual Property Review. The goods consisted of footwear, eyewear, undergarments and other accessories, which were manufactured to look like they were authentic Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Michael Kors, Porsche, and BMW goods.  

These busts in Bucharest come on the heels of an array of recent seizures of drugs by U.S. Customs and Border Protection in the U.S., as well as a rise in the confiscation of counterfeit Hoverboards, including nearly $2 million of the fake electronic toys by U.S. Customs and Border Protection at the Port of Savannah last month.
