Counterfeit Bags
Ron Dennis, who is a licensed vendor, works on Canal Street in New York, Tuesday, June 4, 2013. If a proposed bill passes the City Council, customers caught buying counterfeit items could be punished _ with a fine of up to $1,000, or even prison time."You've got to be kidding," said Dennis, 43, a licensed vendor who sells glass pipes off a table on the street and is an occasional customer, too. "I definitely would never come back; it's very unfair; you're demonizing a whole neighborhood." (AP Photo/Seth Wenig)
