When you log on to shop at Amazon.com in the near future you may benefit from the work of a CSI team the retail giant has created to crack down on counterfeit kit and haul its makers into court.

But as the new team is staffed with "former federal prosecutors, experienced investigators, and data analysts" and has been given the job of helping Amazon "to more effectively pursue civil litigation against suspected criminals … and aid law enforcement officials worldwide in criminal actions against counterfeiters", the CSI moniker seems plausibly applicable.
Amazon says the new unit will join the 8,000 other staff it has working on "fraud and abuse, including counterfeit". ®
