A good press agent helps Kate Spade get the word out.  This is the second profile in two weeks the NY Times has run on Barbara Kolsun, general counsel of Kate Spade, and former head of the International Anticouterfeiting Coalition.  Interesting comment is her assertion that recently there were 900 auction sites selling fake Kate Spade purses.  Also of interest was the comment that she had obtained assistance from the Simon Properties (which owns 140 malls nationwide), in cracking down on mall kiosks selling infringing goods.
