Federal Court Judge William Pauley of Manhattan announced on Monday that luxury giant Richemont could ban 2,700 websites that sell counterfeit and inferior goods. These websites sell Richemont’s brands including Cartier, Lang A. Lange & Sohne, Officine Panerai, Roger Dubuis, Alfred Dunhill and other brands of counterfeit watches, jewelry, sunglasses and bags and other accessories.
This is not the first Richemont action against counterfeit websites. Previously, the group sued Tony Chen and Fan Bao Dian to the court and received US $ 100 million in compensation. In recent years, the courts have given great support to the crackdown on counterfeit websites, and many brands have defended their reputations by cracking down on counterfeit websites.
The Lifeng Group has issued announcements to the operators of these websites, and has now banned payment platforms on more than 1,400 websites, preventing large capital transactions.
