Trademark Counterfeiting, Product Piracy, and the Billion Dollar Threat to the U.S. Economy

Synopsis

Journalist and writer Paul Paradise gives an in-depth examination of what's been called the business crime wave of the 21st century--a trend that is already absorbing 5-7 percent of the world's commerce and billions of dollars from the U.S. economy. He explores the history of the problem, how counterfeiting and piracy are done, and how U.S. businesses are trying to battle it. With interviews, commentary, and anecdotes by corporate attorneys, business leaders, and private investigators, Paradise shows what is behind this appalling criminal industry, that ranges from t-shirts and watches to pharmaceuticals and airplane parts. This is an important, well-written study for anyone interested in world trade and the damage that violations of intellectual property laws can inflict.
