I think the question is how many people know they are buying fake goods, do they realize they are encroaching on other's patented ideas? I realize that for many have a even a fake Louis Vuitton is acceptable, but the idea that some jackleg pirate is taking money and selling stolen ideas is not. I too hope that due process of law of followed to the letter when these sites were shut down.
