Copyright Infringement – Step Right Up!

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.
