L.A. Kings fans going to parade warned about fake merchandise

sportsbizAs Kings fans gear up for Thursday’s parade and rally honoring the Stanley Cup champions in downtown Los Angeles, NHL officials are warning them to watch out for fake merchandise sold on the streets.

Why this article is a must-read: Counterfeit merchandise is a big problem in sports today as street merchants are trying to make a buck off of the consumer without having rights to produce the merchandise. During the 2011 Stanley Cup Final, authorities in Boston and Vancouver, B.C., seized more than $500,000 of fake merchandise, which means lost revenue for the team.
