Counterfeiting and piracy are illicit businesses in which criminal networks thrive.
The report shows that the items that they and other counterfeiters and pirates

health and safety risks that range from mild to life-threatening. Economy-wide,
counterfeiting and piracy undermine innovation, which is key to economic growth.
