Intellectual Property Rights Investigation &
Investigation & Intelligence Consulting
Intellectual copyright infringements are commonplace today particularly in Asia, Africa and Eastern Europe,
and they cost businesses and corporations billions of dollars. The faking and counterfeiting of pharmaceutical
products including brand names in Asia and Africa are gradually destroying the competitive advantage of major
pharmaceutical companies in North America and Europe. According to WHO, 10% of medicines worldwide are
counterfeited. In the West African sub-region, it is a well-researched fact that 35% of all pharmaceutical
products marketed there are fake and counterfeit.
Other commonly infringed property rights include technology, music and films. A 2004 study by the Business
Software Alliance showed that about 35% of the software installed on computers worldwide was pirated. J.C.
