(AGMA) and  KPMG LLP, revealed that about $100 billion of global IT industry revenue is

Commerce suggest that counterfeit goods accounted for 6% of world trade in 2003,
valued at $456 billion.

Recent Case:

We recently assisted two clients in a counterfeit investigation in the People's Republic
of China. The case resulted in the seizure of $25,000,000 (Hong Kong Dollars) of
counterfeit computer and telephone equipment. Twelve organized crime members
were arrested, several factories were closed, and an organization that employed 250
people in its criminal enterprise was put out of business. We developed market
intelligence, had undercover communications with the perpetrators, made undercover
purchases of equipment, and assisted in developing probable cause for search and
arrest warrants.
Overall, U.S. businesses lose $200 billion to $250 billion in revenue and 750,000 jobs
annually because of counterfeiting, according to government estimates from IACC.
Fortune 500 companies spend an average of $2 million to $4 million annually – and some
as much as $10 million – to combat the problem, IACC states.
