NFL given OK to shut counterfeit sales websites
NEW YORK (AP) — The NFL won a court order Wednesday to shut down the operators of nearly 1,500 China-based websites accused of selling fake NFL merchandise, continuing the league's effort to counter booming counterfeit sales of its popular player jerseys and other merchandise.
