UK Launches Social Media Crackdown

British authorities have launched one of the biggest-ever enforcement operations of its kind in a concerted effort to combat online piracy and the prevalence of counterfeit goods being sold on social media. While some investigations are ongoing, 4,300 Facebook listings and 20 Facebook profiles have been removed as a result of the eCrime team’s efforts, and more than 200 warning and cease and desist letters have been issued.
