were street vendors in Anniston. The men are each charged with one
count of felony failure to display the required manufacturer's label
on packaging, the men could be charged with one count per
counterfeit item. The men were selling the CDs at two locations on
the side of West 15th Street and one spot in the 2300 block of Noble
