Coach Cops Quarter-Billion-Dollar Win Against Counterfeiters

Posted Tuesday November 6, 2012 9:04 AM GMT

It’s no secret that some of the world’s top brands are susceptible to having their designs stolen by counterfeiters, but Coach has just posted a big win for the good guys.

According to a report, the much-beloved label was just awarded $257 million in a lawsuit against online retailers who sell fake versions of their products.

In fact, over 600 websites will be taken down as a result of the ruling, marking the largest victory of a brand over the counterfeit realm.

Given that there are so many moving parts involved Coach will most likely not score whole payday, though it’s an important win for fashion designers everywhere.
