WASHINGTON — Federal authorities on Thursday said there is growing concern about the sophisticated nature of counterfeit Web sites, as they announced the seizure of 70 sites they allege were illegally selling thousands of fake products, including clothing, jewelry and other luxury goods, as part of an operation dubbed “Project Copy Cat.”

Counterfeits of several fashion brands were being sold on the illegal sites, including Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Tory Burch, Tiffany, True Religion and Burberry, according to U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement officials. A sample of the bogus fashion domain names seized included louisvuittononlineoutlet2012.net, tiffanyandcojewelrysale.net, usa-jeansoutlet.com, usa-truereligionjean.com, ukfashionoutletmall.com, chanel2outlet.com, tory-burchoutletsclearance.com and bpuma.com.
