Global counterfeit goods locations, list released

During 2006, the International Chamber of Commerce's BASCAP Intelligence Reports monitored 414 global incidents of intellectual property theft which relate primarily to mobile, temporary, and low rent locations in 44 countries. Street vendors, car boot sales, markets, trade shows, mall outlets, purse parties, hotels, rallies, and bazaars represent 25% of the 1,647 incidents monitored valued at $1.9 billion in 2006.

Although law enforcement is aware of the activities which occur at these locations, the public is not always privy to this information. In an effort to warn consumers regarding the location of illegal and harmful products, the ICC has published a list of areas where fake goods have been traded.

"Consumers seeking to protect themselves from these goods should be aware these locations have been previously investigated for sales of counterfeit and pirated goods." said Glen Gieschen, the manager of the Intelligence Reports program.

"Mobile locations are an obvious choice for any criminal, whether they peddle methamphetamine, bootleg DVDs or knockoff handbags, these locations are easier to evade the scrutiny of law enforcement. The use of temporary venues also serves to increase the investigative resources required thus limiting law enforcement efforts and low rent venues such as farmers markets and some mall outlets are attractive to counterfeiters seeking to maximize their profits and fund-raising efforts."

Top locations raided in 2006:
1. Palika Bazaar (India)
2. Burma Bazaar (India)
3. Canal Street (USA)
4. New Divisoria Mall (Philippines)
5. Paddy's Market (UK)
6. Petaling Street (Malaysia)
7. Ratu Plaza (Indonesia)
