Just Say the Knock-off Dress from China

Written By: Brenda (B.K.) Walker

The U.S. may be battling a lot of manufacturing issues directly related to China, but counterfeiting? Really? It's not counterfeit money the Democrat Senator from New Jersey, Bob Menendez, is worried about. The issue is designer knock-off dresses from China that has the Senator fighting mad. The Senator wants to sew-up the loopholes these Chinese clothing counterfeiters use to bring their fake products to the United States. Senator Menendez argues the importance of putting an end to the counterfeiting market that is costing American businesses billions of dollars each year.

"'The effects of this direct-to-consumer sale of counterfeit goods negatively impacts companies, consumers, and taxpayers alike,' Menendez wrote over the weekend. 'American companies that invest in the design, marketing, and manufacturing, and distribution of prom and bridal dresses are losing sales to Chinese firms that flagrantly violate U.S. law.'" (The Hill, October 2014)
