Every industry has suffered from imitation products. What initially seemed harmless only causing economic damage to the fashion product or luxury item sector has become far more widespread with cheaper products like CD or DVDs even being targeted here. The phenomenon still affects trend fashion and accessories brands as well as pharmaceuticals, spare parts for machinery and installation, be it food and beverages, cigarettes or perfumes and cosmetics.

Experts estimate that major per cent of car spare parts are counterfeit. Branded goods manufacturers suspect that major per cent of their turnover is lost to counterfeit products.

This has prompted the industry to take numerous measures to protect it self from professional counterfeiters. it is not merely a question of preventing the economic damage caused by individual products. Cases of personal injury, as was the case with the Concorde disaster, are no longer isolated exceptions.
