From the Document: "Products that infringe on U.S. trademarks, copyrights, and patents threaten the health and safety of American consumers, our economy, and our national security. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) continued Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) enforcement against these illicit imports mitigates the financial and welfare risk. In Fiscal Year (FY) 2014 the number of IPR seizures decreased nearly 5% to 23,140 from 24,361 in FY 2013. The manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) of the goods had they been genuine decreased 30% to $1,226,347,540. Tactical interagency collaboration with the HSI-led National Intellectual Property Rights Coordination Center (IPR Center) resulted in 683 arrests, with 454 indictments and 461 convictions."
