If people would stop buying them they would be out of business! Along with every other illegal business. Everyone that buys something they know is illegal should be arrested too.

Flushing and Bayside.

One from column "A"
and one from column "B".

Sounds like a menu
of yet another illegal Chinese operation!

The last time I walked the streets of Chinatown in Manhattan,
I counted at least a dozen or so
stores padlocked under court order for counterfeiting!

And what about the many remaining unaccounted for others that still need to be shut down?
