Leave it to the NYC Department to leverage their efforts on cracking down on counterfeit designer merchandise into a PR move. It appears that 7 truckloads of counterfeit merchandise valued at over $10 Million will be sent to Haiti as part of relief efforts. A noble gesture indeed, but it seems a bit odd picturing earthquake survivors tooling around Port Au Prince in knock off Ed Hardy and Diesel jeans. Even better, the market place in Chan Masse will be teeming with old ladies stuffing fruits and vegetables in their fake Louis Vuitton and Gucci bags. This is really an odd story.
