I see potential copyright and trade dress/design patent infringement all the time in Orlando. There are numerous tents lining Semoran Blvd. and Colonial Drive with knockoff purses hanging from wooden dowels. Chanel, Burberry, Coach – easy to spot, and no way that the real deal would be sold for pennies on the dollar.
A story in the local paper today shows that these mobile infringers aren’t limited to retail distribution. According to police, Jairshino Savain had a mobile infringement factory. He allegedly sold pirated movies out of the back of his van. He actually made the copies on the spot using a laptop connected to the van’s battery. And now he’s in jail.
