THREE major retailers have succeeded in a Port Elizabeth High Court application against a store at the Pier 14 Shopping Centre which has been dealing in counterfeit goods.

Earlier this month the court granted an order in favour of Adidas, Puma and Truworths which filed three separate applications against Mama Boutique and its owner, Ndiaye Mouhamed.

According to court papers, the store had been selling goods which infringe on the trademarks of the three retailers. – Lee-Anne Butler

    Why don’t they confiscate the goods? They don’t seem to have trouble taking counterfeit goods away from street traders!
