Cisco Wins $37 Million in Counterfeit Goods Suit

We’ve all seen a watch that was probably not really a Rolex. Or a pocketbook that was probably not really a Coach. Well Network Genesis took counterfeit goods to a new level. The company either bought stolen Cisco products and altered the serial numbers, or rebranded non-Cisco products as the real thing. And got caught.

During the trial, Cuong Cao Dang, the defendant in the case, was found to be using a counterfeit laptop and cell phone in court, and both were confiscated. No, not really. But did anyone check his laptop and cell phone?
