Counterfeiting is the passing off of imitation products as authentic brand-name goods. Counterfeit Sunglass Hut products are typically of poor quality and lack the features that make each pair of Sunglass Hut sunglasses premium quality, including protection against UV radiations. The United States economy is affected by 250 to 500 billion dollars a year in estimated counterfeiting costs.
