Holistic Strategies to Cripple Counterfeit Networks

Proven to be a transnational threat, counterfeiters pose a significant challenge to all industries. Commercial loss, however, is not the only repercussion of replicated products.  Brand owners also face diminished integrity to their brand, an integrity that they have worked hard to build.  While the fight against counterfeiting from 2005 to 2013 has successfully knocked the percentage of world trade of unauthorized goods down from 5% to 2%, the battle for brand protection continues, and various industries are beginning to understand the full impact of the issue.
