Tom Donohue applauds increase in government seizures of counterfeited goods

Jan '07
U.S. Chamber President and CEO Tom Donohue issued the following statement on the 83% increase in seizures of counterfeit goods in FY 2006 by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE):

"The tide is starting to turn against counterfeiters and pirates. CBP, ICE, and the business community are making progress in achieving our shared goal-making the world a miserable for these dangerous criminals."

"There's still much work to be done, but we understand the stakes-the health of our economy, the viability of our businesses, and the safety of our citizens who are too often unwitting victims of these illegal acts."

"CBP and ICE will continue to have strong partners in the business community as we work to put an end to the scourge of counterfeiting and piracy."

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the world's largest business federation representing more than 3 million businesses and organizations of every size, sector, and region.
