Caught Holding the Fake Bag
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Authorities say the world of luxury handbags is a little too competitive. Today's last word on business involves the seizure of a giant supply of knockoffs.
Police in Italy confiscated 650,000 fake Gucci and Louis Vuitton purses, accessories, and other counterfeit items. They came in a Chinese-owned factory in Tuscany. Police say many Chinese businessmen have set up shop in Italy so they can legitimately say that even their counterfeit goods are made in Italy.
Apparently, there are some ethical boundaries you just don't want to cross.
