ICE seizes more sites

John Moe Feb 14, 2011

18 sites accused of trafficking in counterfeit goods were seized by the office Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Just in time for Valentine’s Day. So if you were hoping a fake designer handbag would win her heart, sorry. You’ll have to write poetry or something.

This is all part of Operation In Our Sites. We did a story about this when some sports-related sites were shut down just before the Super Bowl.

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
