The trade in counterfeit goods is growing and is increasingly linked to transnational organized crime. But little is known about the financial mechanisms that lie behind this trade. Fake Goods, Real Money is the first account of the financial management of the counterfeiting business. Written by experts in a wide range of fields, it examines the financial and business structures in relation to the illicit trade in counterfeit products. It also considers how the internet and e-commerce present financial opportunities for counterfeiters and explores how these processes interact with the trade in counterfeit products. Based on interviews with active criminal entrepreneurs in the UK and abroad and other data, the authors explore organized crime and mutating criminal markets, digital technologies and their criminological and sociological implications, and cultural values and practices. Engaging with practitioner communities working at local, national and international levels including National Trading Standards, the book will make a significant contribution to our understanding of these timely issues.
