Is it worth the Risk?

Penalties for violating the Act...

For a first time violation of the Act, an individual can face civil or criminal penalties up to a $250,000 fine or a 5-year prison term, or both.

If a business violates the Act, it can face civil penalties or can be prosecuted and fined up to $1,000,000.

The IACB warns that consumer fraud not only harms the buyers, it also erodes the overall Indian arts and crafts market and the economic and cultural livelihood of Indian artists, craftspeople, and Tribes.
