The previous chapter outlined the nature and scale of the threats to a company’s IP and brands, through all forms of IP theft, particularly but not exclusively product counterfeiting. For example, patent infringement remains a huge area of IP threat but one that is beyond the scope of this book. The previous chapter also referred to the growing problem of product safety and the damage that dangerous counterfeit products can do to the principal’s corporate reputation and brand name, but of course product safety issues may also arise from legitimate sources of production.
