The Justice Department, Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the FBI have teamed up to take 150 websites that are alleged to have sold counterfeit products.

Fox News reports the domains of those sites are now in federal custody, but Justice isn't releasing the names of the seized sites.

However, banners cover the pages, letting visitors to the site know the site has been shut down by federal authorities.
