How much lost due to counterfeiting? Over fifteen billion euros a year, just as the EU is concerned. In other words, the equivalent of building thirty-three hospitals. This is among the findings of the two reports released by EUIPO last Wednesday, one about the damaging effects of counterfeiting and the other, jointly produced with Europol, addressing the link between IP and other types of crimes. In this fight, a welcome initiative was lately taken by Google: a new option to review and take down counterfeit goods from search results.
