Anti-Counterfeiting and Brand Protection

The street peddlers who can be seen hawking bargain-basement knock-offs of famous brands and pirated music CDs and movie DVDs are just the tip of a massive iceberg of counterfeiting and piracy activity.  These criminal networks operate in the shadows, are international in scope and impact virtually every industry and global brand on the planet. Pharmaceuticals, automotive parts, apparel, electrical components, food and beverage products, toys, cosmetics and personal care items are just some of the many products being counterfeited around the world on a daily basis.  The International Chamber of Commerce has estimated that counterfeit goods account for a staggering 5 to 7 percent of world trade, a market worth approximately $600 billion annually. To brand owners, that number represents corporate profits stolen through the criminal exploitation of their intellectual property, and the precious trust and loyalty that they have earned with consumers over many years and perhaps billions of dollars in brand development costs.  The harm, moreover, is not limited to lost company profits.  Counterfeit products can maim or kill consumers, causing severe reputational damage to brand owners as well as obvious public health concerns.
