Coach suing Target over fakes

Coach has filed suit against Target to stop them from selling fake Coach hanfbags:
Coach Inc., which markets luxury handbags and leather products, sued discount retailer Target Corp., asking that Target "immediately cease and desist from selling" counterfeit handbags that claim to be the real deal. In addition to seeking any profits on its sales of the alleged Coach knock-offs, "we'd also like them to make all records of these sales available to us," including suppliers, said a Coach spokesperson. Target did not return phone calls.
If the allegations are correct (we have no way of knowing), it's a poor idea on Target's part, since word of something like this can undermine shoppers' confidence in everything they carry. We'll wait to hear Target's side of the story.
