FREE TRADE AND COUNTERFEIT HAVENS:

A CROSS-INDUSTRY DIALOGUE

 

Michigan State University College of Law

 

October 12, 2004

 

Cosponsored by
International AntiCounterfeiting Coalition, Inc.

 

DESCRIPTION

 

Counterfeiting is one of the most difficult transnational problems today. Every year, the United States loses millions of dollars in tax revenue and tens of thousands of jobs because of the manufacture, distribution and sale of counterfeit goods. Such widespread counterfeiting not only makes it difficult for legitimate retailers to compete in the marketplace, but poses health and safety risks, especially when food, drugs, medical supplies, and agricultural products are involved. This roundtable brings together scholars, policymakers, industry leaders, and legal practitioners to address issues concerning intellectual property enforcement and free trade agreements.
