Re: Use the cloud to combat counterfeit goods, and impact the bottom line

Steve Simske

Counterfeiting is a huge slice of overall worldwide illicit trade. Please see http://www.weforum.org/content/global-agenda-council-illicit-trade-2012 for more on this larger problem. Illicit trade funds terrorism and pejoratively affects a variety of human rights. When counterfeit products are purchased, counterfeit regimes are supported, worker rights are undermined, and money laundering is empowered.
