The Homeland Security Investigations-led National Intellectual Property Rights Coordination Center provided the backdrop for the release of a report on the state of counterfeit and pirated goods trafficking, and recommendations focused on protecting businesses and consumers with strategies aimed at achieving the President’s stated goals. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) released its first report pursuant to President Trump’s April 3, 2019, Memorandum on Combatting Trafficking in Counterfeit and Pirated Goods. The first-ever report outlines a series of recommendations and actions that can be taken by both the federal government and industry partners to combat this illicit trade epidemic.
