Almost 300 Domain Names Seized In Counterfeiting Crackdown

Police from across 19 countries have seized 292 domain names of websites that were deemed to be selling counterfeit merchandise online to unsuspecting customers. The operation, dubbed 'In Our Sites: Transatlantic V', involved Europol, US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and Homeland Security Investigations, together with 25 additional law enforcement agencies.
