Counterfeit sports merchandising is a criminal industry that nets billions a year worldwide. This year, there will be even more, with the world's focus on the London Olympics. British specialists have already made countless arrests for attempting to move phony souvenirs. And they are warning vacationers coming to see the games to be careful about what they purchase.



They have been going around busting retailers of counterfeit goods. Retailers can also buy stuff at discount and get it cheaper not knowing its bogus.



The idea that mark downs are "built in" completely ignores the actual consumer and market dynamics in play and shows an astounding lack of understanding of retail practices. Freshman stuff this.
