Why E-waste Becoming Counterfeit Components Is Your Problem!

Posted by Colin Page on Aug 20, 2013 10:53:00 AM

After a recent case in which the owner of an electronics recycling company was handed a 30-month prison sentence for exporting over 400 shipments containing over 1 million dollars’ HATworth of electronic waste overseas in direct violation of federal law, the defendant’s attorney made the following statement: “I have represented people accused of, and who have committed, horrific crimes. This isn’t one of them. The impact was that some people — not all of them — didn’t get their electronics disposed of in a way they approved of.”  This attorney went on to justify her client’s behavior by stating that no one lost their jobs as a result of Executive Recycling’s misrepresentation and none of the victims in the case were financially ruined.   This view of the situation not only completely ignores the reality of e-waste export, but is also factually wrong.
