I was shocked when coming home from Tunisia a couple of years back, to see not only the fake goods on sale, but where they were on sale ...........The airport shops!

WHy were you shocked? I would have been over the moon to be given the chance to buy fake goods at a cut down price - not that I would have, cos I dont give a damn about branding, but to have the choice would be nice :-)

I notice that in the scaremongering report below, all the links to terrorists etc are 'thought to be' or 'believed' to be. So the Madrid bombers pirated CD's? What does that mean? If they had sold drugs instead would that have made it OK?

The point is, there is a demand and they are feeding it. Remove the demand and they move onto something else. Make the penalties harsher and the people who make the stuff get paid less! Its simple economics.

Its a fact of life - we are never ever going to stop peoples greed for consumer products. End of.

Having lived in southern Italy I know full well what they do and who it effects. I certainlly would not personally want to line their pockets.

Having said that I don't buy designer things anyway lol

I have never wanted designer goods so wouldn't want fake ones either, doesn't bother me in the slightest that my belongings are run of the mill, do the job and look ok items. My son was never brought up to think designer gear meant it was better than ordinary articles but due to peer pressure, I was persuaded to buy him the usual trendynamed trainers etc. I think he is a bit more inclined towards designer clothing etc now, but as he doesn't earn loads of money and has a flat to run, he can't afford much and will just buy when he can afford it from ebay, i.e. secondhand, or from stores with affordable named goods.
I think it is sad to want things that have certain names etc on them, has no one heard of originality?
