Facebook Being Blamed For Promoting Counterfeit NFL Jerseys
Facebook makes a bulk of their revenue from “Sponsored” advertisements. An NFL merchandise retailer is proposing a class action lawsuit against Facebook for promoting alleged knock-off goods. Based in New Mexico, Krystal’s NFL Shoppe said that many of Facebook’s display ads are actually Chinese knock-offs. For example “Nike NFL Jerseys $21″ and other ads appeared on Krystal’s Facebook Page. Some people believe that Krystal was selling the knock-offs. Krystal said in the lawsuit that counterfeit goods are using the credibility of legitimate merchandisers and Facebook to turn a profit. Krystal is suing on behalf of all NFL merchandise makers.
