Counterfeit Electronics Seized

CNS--Federal agents at the Los Angeles/Long Beach port complex seized a large shipment of counterfeit electronic items from China, officials announced Tuesday.

The shipment of 5,475 wireless routers and 7,472 Ethernet switches was confiscated on Friday, said Cristina Gamez of U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

The items had logos similar to products by Apple, Microsoft and Windows Vista, and had a "domestic value" of $659,500, and a "manufacturer's suggested retail price" of $857,340, Gamez said.

Customs and Border Protection experts determined that the logos were "substantially indistinguishable" from trademarks recorded with CPB.

"CPB is charged with enforcing trade laws, and we continue to devote substantial resources to target, intercept, detain, seize and forfeit shipments of goods that violate these laws," said Kevin W. Weeks, CBP's director of field operations in Los Angeles.

 There were no arrests.
