Counterfeit Boom in the Middle East -Berto gives it a miss
A number of media are reporting on the increase of counterfeited goods being trafficked and sold through the Middle East.
Many of these products, including printer cartridges originate from China and are being packaged in look-alike OEM boxes to trick consumers about what they are buying.
One industry observer concurs, “The most critical impediment in fighting piracy in the Gulf is its largest market, Saudi Arabia.” There are huge “losses to the retail, merchandising, advertising, promotion, media and video games industries. These potentially snowball into billions of riyals.”
How about a printer cartridge? Really cheap!!
