A federal court has sentenced the owner of a Michigan-based computer company to 30 months in prison and fined him $10,000 for counterfeiting and improper storage and disposal of hazardous waste. Mark Glover, of Discount Computers, Inc., pleaded guilty to trafficking in counterfeit goods and storing and disposing of hazardous waste without a permit. The company shipped cathode ray tube (CRT) monitors to Egypt with fake factory labels claiming more recent manufacturing dates intended to evade that country’s prohibition on importing computer equipment more than five years old. The export scheme also evaded the federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act’s requirement to dispose of old CRT monitors as hazardous waste. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) has targeted illegal e-waste exports as one of its top international priorities. In addition to the penalties imposed on Mr. Glover, the company was fined $2 million and ordered to pay over $10,000 in restitution to its Michigan landlord. United States v. Glover, No. 2:12-28282 (E.D. Mich. Mar. 22, 2013).
