Chapter 5: Initiatives to stem illicit trade in the United States
In this chapter, the primary focus will be to 1) illustrate the incidence of counterfeit trade by way of seizure data from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (Customs and Border Protection); 2) highlight the leading agencies designed to protect the intellectual property environment, such as Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE); 3) discuss a few agencies that rely on the joint efforts of several of the U.S.-government-led organizations (such as the “StopFakes”) and the private sector (such as, “Looks too good to be true”). The author acknowledges that this chapter is simply a narrative of these agencies, but, providing a roadmap of the distinct governing bodies will prove to be valuable for a variety of stakeholders, especially the novice manager that may get lost in the labyrinth of agencies that may be able to assist with safeguarding the intellectual property of the firm.
