Counterfeit: A serious problem for everyone

     Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) have been established to ensure that creative and inventive efforts are rewarded and that investments in new and more efficient products are encouraged. They greatly stimulate the creation of jobs in today's knowledge-based economy.

     Infringements of intellectual property rights are a widespread and worrying phenomenon. Reasons for its expansion are various, including the attractiveness of a 'look-alike product' at a cheap price, the ease of production of copies at minimal costs, the development of new forms of marketing such as e-commerce and the growth of international trade.

     IPR infringements are harmful as they reduce business and government revenues, stifle investment and innovation and hinder economic growth. They result in job losses and reduced wealth creation (Gross Domestic Product or GDP). Furthermore, IPR infringing goods risk harming consumers, as they are less likely than others to be manufactured in compliance with health and safety standards.

     Trade in IPR infringing goods is a serious problem for everyone and therefore dealing with it is the responsibility of everyone.
