Buying A Fake Bag In NYC Could Soon Land You In Jail


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.


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???
