Converging Crimes – Tracking proceeds from the sale of counterfeit goods
Recently MarkMonitor partnered with Michigan State University’s Center for Anti-Counterfeiting and Product Protection (A-CAPP) to commence a research study into the overlap of counterfeiting with other, arguably more serious, crimes. The research study used the A-CAPP Center’s Product Counterfeiting Database to search thousands of court records and empirical databases to correlate counterfeit operations with many other illegal activities.
