    eugh...if this is what the government proposes to counter counterfeit goods (making an 'example' of 0.0001% of counterfeit goods manufacturers once every blue moon while hoping the others will shit themselves and close up shop rather than actually enforcing the law equally and fairly homogeneously across the country) then they are even dumber than I thought.

    SHOW-CASE. SHOW-TRIAL. SHOW-SENTENCE. Very little substance behind it all.
