The report analyses the problem of pirated or counterfeit goods being brought into the European Union and customs seizure of these goods. The study describes, e.g. seizure growth dynamics, selected categories of goods most frequently seized on suspicion of infringing intellectual property rights and the geographical origins of counterfeit goods.

In addition to illustrating the scale on which counterfeit goods are imported to the EU and the related dangers for producers and consumers, we describe the measures that should be taken to effectively combat the problem.

Our report is a source of invaluable knowledge showing goods producers how to protect their intellectual property rights.
