Another Reason To Hate WalMart.
Bucky The MoonBat Slayer is a Republican in favor of free enterprise, but he is also a Populist Libertarian who is against corporate greed and corruption that destroys small local business economies. There are many Liberal Moonbat activists who are against the excesses of Wal-Mart, and I must confess that this is one of the few (VERY few) Moonbat issues I'll agree with.
It has been charged by activists that Wal-Mart purposely sells fake and counterfeit label merchandise, and then leaves the burden of proof and enforcement of the law up to the manufacturers and label owners themselves.
Activists say that Wal-Mart has deep enough pockets and sharp enough lawyers to be able to keep lawsuits grinding on in court for years. If ever they loose in court, they pay out settlements they can easily afford, and then move on to the next product brand they can exploit with counterfeit merchandise purchases from the Far East.
