I think your post is spot-on in recommending a holistic approach to counterfeiting. It is not the responsibility of a single unit, but should be a topic that is talked about at virtually all levels of the firm. I think it goes without saying that actually having a budget is a solid first step. I would add only that you need to link that budget to actual measures of success. With some continuous counterfeiting market research you can start seeing which activities are bearing fruit.

This is definately an issue where context matters, so I would argue against most global-based campaigns (though certainly someone at the global level can organize and track progress throughout the subsidiary organizations). I think the appropriate role of the HQ here (for global organizations) is the lobbying/public affairs/government relations side. Management there will have the titles to enlist the aid of parties that would otherwise ignore smaller, non-local players.


wow. that was really informative!

Colouring matters Colouring matter is a collective name for all colouring substance. In this category are dyes and pigments: 1. Dyes: Dyes are organic colouring matters, which are completely soluble in solvents and / or binding agents and therewith enter into a real chemical amalgamation. You can clarify this exact definition with an example: If you put some sugar candy into hot water and stir it some time, you cannot see anymore sugar candy particles when you look through the glass afterwards. It has completely dissolved in the water. 2. Pigments: Pigments are colouring matters, which are existant insolubly in solvents and / or binding agents. This can also be clarified by an example: If you try to mix carbon black with water, you could still see particles of the carbon black, even after long stirring or shaking. The same can be watched with coffee. Consequently the carbon black and the coffee are only finely dispersed, but not completely dissolved. Pigments are mainly used for the production of colours with good covering power. Hence it can be deduced as follows: Dyes amalgamate completely with solvents and / or binding agents, while pigments are only dispersed finely, but not dissolved completely. Furthermore: Dyes result in transparent solutions, pigments in non-transparent solutions.
