MegaGroup further conducts investigations into the sale of counterfeit or infringing products on the Internet, including those on websites and online auctions. Anonymous undercover purchases of suspected counterfeit or pirated merchandise are made via documented chain of custody, and when necessary MegaGroup supports seizure/recovery efforts and related litigation.
