Counterfeit dealers prosecuted

A migrant worker surnamed Zheng has been charged for selling counterfeited luxury goods valued at more than 7 million yuan (US$1.05 million).

The counterfeits covered such luxury brands as Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Chanel, Rolex, Omega, Longines and Cartier.

Zheng rented a Xuhui District apartment as a warehouse last December and hired people to solicit buyers.

Police seized 917 bogus watches, bags and wallets in his apartment early this year. They were valued at 7.63 million yuan if they were real, Shanghai prosecutors said yesterday.

They said 46 suspects have been indicted this month for 30 intellectual property infringement cases, involving 83 million yuan. Confiscated items included cigarettes, watches, eye-glasses, bags and steel.

Luwan District prosecutors accused a man surnamed Liu of picking up 32 boxes of fake cigarettes from a logistics company using a fake identification card. The cigarettes are valued over 290,000 yuan.

Prosecutors said a nationwide campaign against intellectual property infringement will soon be carried out and will last for half a year.
