New Yorkers are about to get a lesson or two about purchasing counterfeit goods. Mind you, since most of the goods are sold here, it seems logical. (You don’t buy counterfeit , do you?) According to WWD, a new public service campaign aimed at educating New Yorkers about the
human cost of purchasing counterfeit items was unveiled Tuesday at the
Harper’s Bazaar annual Anticounterfeiting Summit.
The goal is to make locals aware of the
harm that counterfeiting causes, such as supporting child labor and
taking away tax dollars from the city. The posters will be displayed
throughout Manhattan, and predominantly in high-traffic tourist
locations such as Times Square.
Tourists, be warned. Counterfeit is just icky anyway.See the Top Ten Summer 2016 Trends for Women Over 40
