It starts with knowing what's out there. Online marketplaces, social media, apps, websites, and the dark web are conduits for the sale of counterfeit and infringing products. Gain intelligence on which unauthorized products are hitting the market and where they're being sold. Then take action.

Analyze

It takes a trained professional to know what to look for. Counterfeits are made to look like the real deal and can fool just about anybody. Collected evidence is studied and scrutinized to positively confirm whether a product is genuine, counterfeit, or otherwise infringing.
