Burberry Sues Boutique Store Over Counterfeited Merchandise - 19/08/10

This is definitely a week of Fake vs Genuine, as counterfeiters are striking luxury labels all around the world. Earlier we brought you news surrounding Coach counterfeited goods and the latest addition to the bag involves Burberry, who are now suing a luxury boutique chain store Variazoni, for selling fake merchandise. The lawsuit is sitting at $2 million, and it’s not the first time the store has been caught out selling counterfeit items- last year in June they were busted for selling 86 Burberry fakes, and clearly they can’t keep a promise after signing a contract saying they would never do it again!
