Counterfeiting of brand-name products has become a booming international business. Copies of almost everything, from luxury watches and perfumes, to brake pads and babies' dummies, are being produced in their thousands by factories-mainly in the Far East. The fakes are often poorly made and in some cases highly dangerous, yet the genuine manufacturers are often powerless to stamp out their illicit production. Worse still, the worldwide sale of fakes is beginning to hit the export markets of UK companies, cutting into their profits and threatening jobs.
Bill Breckon follows the counterfeit trail from the factories of the Far East to the shops of Britain.

understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.

50s, you can navigate by issue.
