U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has just released a few new details on Operation in Our Sites, the ongoing and often controversial initiative to crack down on sites allegedly used to sell counterfeit goods or that are otherwise involved in copyright infringement.
“The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) led National Intellectual Property Rights Coordination Center (IPR Center) and the Department of Justice seized more than $896,000 in proceeds from the distribution of counterfeit sports apparel as the result of an investigation into the sale of counterfeit goods on commercial websites,” ICE report today.
“The investigation also resulted in the seizure of seven domain names engaged in the sale of counterfeit goods. The funds were seized from interbank accounts and three PayPal accounts.”
Operation in Our Sites has been running since its first targets (including NinjaVideo) were hit back in June 2010.
According to ICE, to date a total of 758 domain names have been seized.
