International scandal, undercover private investigators, shredded evidence, intimidation, and theft: all in a day’s work for Brett Kingstone, author of “The Real War Against America.” Kingstone tells the true story of the company he founded, Super Vision International, and its desperate struggle against Chinese counterfeiters who stole designs, equipment and profits.
When Kingstone learned that the market had been flooded with counterfeit Super Vision products, he started to fight back immediately, protecting the business he started as a 19-year-old Stanford student. With little or no help from the local police, the F.B.I. or the U.S. justice department, Super Vision gathered enough evidence to take the criminals to court with the help of private investigators posing as rich Arab sheiks. But the defendants, their lawyers and their bankers went to extremes to cover up their crimes.
In 2002, Super Vision won a $33 million verdict against the intellectual-property thieves, but Kingstone has yet to see a dime. As one expert testified in court, the defendants wired $28.5 million out of the United States before the trial “using methods consistent with money laundering.”
For six years and counting, Brett Kingstone has fought against criminals who many would have simply let get away with what they had done. Kingstone stood up for himself, his company and his country. “The Real War Against America” is a riveting story and an urgent call to arms for every American citizen to fight against terrorists who do not need bullets or bombs to destroy the American dream.
