Chapter 18: The critical role of intermediaries in stopping counterfeiting and piracy

William Dobson

Abstract

This chapter takes a detailed look at one aspect of the counterfeiting and piracy problem: how intermediaries in the global supply chain are being used, knowingly or unknowingly, by counterfeiters and their criminal networks to produce and distribute counterfeit goods and pirated materials. The chapter discusses the roles and responsibilities of intermediaries to stop the infiltration of these illicit goods, and presents examples of current best practices and recommendations for what can be done to stop it.
