Again, I'd say that needs to be proven. Isn't the sequence generally something like:

chip maker -> device maker -> distributor -> retail chain -> local store -> cashier who actually carries out transaction -> buyer

Exactly how far along that chain does knowledge of counterfeit go?

All the way to the end. If the price is 'too good to be true' then the customer knows.
