Time Magazine is reporting that European and U.S. authorities have cracked down on another group of websites that traffic in counterfeit goods. This continues to be an ongoing battle between authorities and the counterfeiters who have networks all throughout the world.

“These websites were set up to dupe consumers into unknowingly buying counterfeit products,” Europol said in a statement. In the operation dubbed “In Our Sites,” U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement took down 297 domain names in the United States, while European authorities in Belgium, Denmark, France, Hungary, Romania, Spain and the UK seized 393 domains.
