New York City is continuing their crackdown on counterfeit goods being sold on Canal Street.

On Thursday councilwoman Margaret Chin, who represents the Chinatown district, plans to introduce a bill that would punish those buying designer knockoffs.

If caught in the act, shoppers would face a $1000 fine or a year in jail.

Ouch.

We applaud her effort of fighting fakes, but would this new law work?

According to police, not a chance. One officer flat out said "it's never going to fly" because it would be too difficult to enforce.

Would this new law stop U from buying fakes in NYC???
