  1. Here is a question concerning the definition of “counterfeit military good or service” per 18 USC § 2320 …

    (f)(4) A “counterfeit military good or service” is a good or service that uses a counterfeit mark and that
    (A) is falsely identified or labeled as meeting military specifications, or
    (B) is intended for use in a military or national security application.

    Parts and materials used in equipment produced for military and national security applications include items “labeled as meeting military specifications” as well as items that are not. Though the producers of the latter may be aware that the items are frequently used in equipment produced for military and national security applications, the producer generally does not represent or certify the items are intended for use in such applications. Furthermore, in many cases a military specification for the item does not exist.

    Are the examples I describe not subject to 18 USC § 2320?
