Perpetuity Research: The phenomenal challenge posed by counterfeiting


Starting 20 May 2021 15:30 through to 20 May 2021 16:30

The phenomenal challenge posed by counterfeiting: what are we going to do?

Counterfeiting along with copyright infringements, is big business, it is extremely lucrative for criminals, the EU alone estimates an annual cost of €50 billion. It takes place across sectors, it is international and perhaps most worryingly it is driven by demand. Of course, it is illegal, more specifically it is used to fund organised crime; it supports child exploitation; it can create serious threats to heath for example by containing poisonous substitutes in drink and food or in say medicines lacking active ingredients; and it results in fraudulent product warranty claims. Moreover, it undermines legitimate business; generates the potential for considerable reputational damage and deprives Governments of tax revenues. This webinar will explore:

  • The dangers posed by counterfeiting (and copyright infringements)
  • The loopholes that make it attractive for offenders
  • The limits of current prevention approaches and what we do next
