Mapping the Real Routes of Trade in Fake Goods: Illicit Markets Around the Globe

New OECD-EUIPO Brochure: Mapping the Real Routes of Trade in Fake Goods: Trade in counterfeit and pirated goods is a vital threat for modern, innovation-driven economies, a worldwide phenomenon that grows in scope and magnitude.

Counterfeiters ship infringing products via complex routes, with many intermediary points, which poses a substantial challenge to efficient enforcement.  Precise information about the routes of trade in counterfeit goods is essential for tailoring effective governance responses to this scourge.

The complexity of the routes of trade in fake can be a formidable obstacle for enforcement authorities. OECD-EUIPO worked together to analyse a unique set of global customs seizure data to chart the routes of trade in fake goods, and partnered with the World Customs Organization, the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Taxation and Customs Union, and the United States Department of Homeland Security, which all provided data on customs seizures of IP-infringing products.
