The Business Action to Stop Counterfeiting and Piracy (BASCAP) initiative —a special project of the International Chamber of Commerce—has today issued a ground-breaking study outlining the steps that intermediaries can take to help keep fake and pirated products out of the supply chain and off the Internet.

The study- Roles and responsibilities of intermediaries: Fighting counterfeiting and piracy in the supply chain -looks at key intermediaries in the physical world and those providing infrastructure and services online, yielding the most comprehensive review to date of the many types of intermediary channels that are being utilized by criminal networks to sell and distribute fakes and pirated content.

Commenting on the study, BASCAP Director, Jeff Hardy said: "Trade is being revolutionized by the emergence of integrated global value chains and the explosion of online commerce. Intermediaries-from express shipping firms through to online search engines-are now a central part of the global economy. 

This is an overwhelmingly positive development, but intermediaries must ensure they have adequate systems in place to address growing counterfeiting and piracy risks."

The study exposes a number of shortcomings in the global network of infrastructures and services that produce, sell and deliver products to customers worldwide, and calls on responsible intermediaries to enhance their systems to prevent the sale of counterfeit goods and pirated content.

Mr Hardy added: "Most intermediaries, when better informed about potential exploitation and the damage done by counterfeiting and piracy, demonstrate a willingness to secure their portion of the supply chain from abuse. This is, quite rightly, a core reputational issue for leading firms. The BASCAP study outlines a range of measures to help responsible businesses deal more effectively with potential vulnerabilities in their operations and platforms."
