Worthing eBay Seller Prosecuted for Selling Counterfeit Tee Shirts
Mr Joseph David Walker of Worthing was prosecuted on Friday 9th January 2015 in Worthing Magistrates Court for the manufacture, possession and sale of counterfeit tee shirts bearing Led Zeppelin and ACDC etc. trade marks. He pleaded guilty and received a fine of £2,500, costs of £1,324.76 and a £50 victim surcharge.
Mr Walker was offering these items for sale on his eBay page and he sold two tee shirts (one to a Trading Standards Officer and one to a brand holder). When Officers visited Mr Joseph David Walker’s address and executed a warrant, they found him in possession of such items too.
Surelock initially brought this case to the attention of West Sussex Trading Standards.
