Combating Trafficking in Counterfeit and Pirated Goods: Report to the President of the United States   [open pdf - 964KB]

From the Executive Summary: "The President's April 3, 2019, 'Memorandum on Combating Trafficking in Counterfeit and Pirated Goods' calls prompt attention to illicit trade that erodes U.S. economic competitiveness and catalyzes compounding threats to national security and public safety. [...] Despite public and private efforts to-date, the online availability of counterfeit and pirated goods continues to increase. Strong government action is necessary to fundamentally realign incentive structures and thereby encourage the private sector to increase self-policing efforts and focus more innovation and expertise on this vital problem. [...] Government action alone is not enough to bring about the needed paradigm shift and ultimately stem the tide of counterfeit and pirated goods. All relevant private-sector stakeholders have critical roles to play and must adopt identified best practices, while redoubling efforts to police their own businesses and supply chains."
