June 7, 2021
The U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce sign a memorandum committing more resources to the battle against makers and sellers of counterfeit goods.

Earlier this month, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers working at the Houston seaport intercepted more than 70,000 various counterfeit Apple and JBL electronics with a combined manufactured suggested retail price (MSRP) over $4 million. According to the CBP, the items were shipped from China and were seized because of intellectual property rights violations.

When the shipment arrived in Houston, CBP officers examined it and discovered various Apple products including Air Pod Pros, Apple Watches, Lightning Cables, protective cases and JBL speakers. Images of the items were sent to the trademark holders who confirmed the items were counterfeit.
