The War on Counterfeit Goods
With knock offs and fakes said to be costing companies in the hundreds of billions, trying to stop counterfeiters can seem like a losing battle.

Counterfeit goods are everywhere. If someone is making it, chances are someone else is faking it. Considered a criminal trifecta – low costs, high profits, and minimal penalties – counterfeiting is believed to cost retailers in the hundreds of billions of dollars. Cameras go undercover from China to Chinatown to reveal the latest trends in fakes, which have gone far beyond designer bags. From high-priced wine to name brand toothpaste…see how the counterfeiters keep their products moving.
