Copyright Counterfeiting enforcement

Businesses invest significant money and effort to create unique works of authorship to benefit from sale to the public. Therefore, protecting the valuable copyrights in the works from illegal copying is important. Copyright misappropriation can take on different forms, such as:

  • Piracy – Illegal reproduction of music, movies, books, other copyright works
  • Copyright Counterfeiting & Infringement – Manufacture and sale of fake goods or knockoffs
  • Gray Market Goods – Sale of goods directed outside the intended channel of trade

This misappropriation of IP rights can cause considerable economic loss of profits and market share by the rightful owner. Therefore, enforcement programs for proactive protection of copyright works are an important consideration.
