Next fashion show... in court

The above advert caught up with me at Charles de Gaules airport in Paris. It is cheekily titled "next fashion show... in court" but right below, it features the anything but cheeky message: buy and carry counterfreit and you could end up in prison, paying a fat 300,000.00 euros fine.

That's France for you, sport a "Chanelle" or "Cucci" bag and they'll defend the original brand's trademark in the most memorable way. The fact that France is taking loud action is great news for designers who are concerned with such issues and well, not so great news for... "Cucci" lovers around the globe!

*Speaking of ethics and rights, I am currently cooking a delicious post on online writing.

very interesting, alecca rox. i am against counterfeit products and have never bought any. yet with those prices around, I don't blame people who buy counterfeit products. I mean shouldn't big brands really compromise a bit? Mediocre branded bags now cost 1000+ euros. This is insane really.
