Counterfeiters are more active than ever, making products that are clever imitations that consumers cannot easily discern from the real thing. Estimated at $4.5 trillion annually and approximately 3% of world trade, it is the largest criminal enterprise in the world. American consumers tend to purchase the highest share of counterfeit goods at around 60-80% of all counterfeit goods sold. Counterfeits go way beyond consumer end-products to include components used in the automotive, electronics, aerospace, and defense industries.
In this talk, (https://californiaconsultants.org/members/rosemary-coates/) will detail how counterfeiters have attained this huge foothold in the world market, as well as how Amazon and Chinese retailers such as Alibaba, Taobao, JD, and others are aggressively tracking and eliminating counterfeits on their platforms through new technologies such as invisible pigments, QR codes, photo mapping, and RFID. She will also discuss why industrial products and electronic components are harder to track, and the ties that counterfeiting enterprises have with terrorist organizations, international arms dealers, and drug cartels. With billions of dollars to be made through counterfeiting, the problem is expected to continue its daunting growth.
