This new joint EUIPO-Europol report on how IP crime supports the activities of organised criminal gangs adds to the growing evidence that counterfeit goods are an attack against society requiring an international response. It demonstrates the interconnection between IPR crime and other types of serious crimes highlighting the links between actors committing these offences. The case studies presented in this report illustrate how a wide range of different crimes are linked to intellectual property crime, including pharmaceutical crime, drug trafficking, manslaughter, illegal arms possession, forced labour, food fraud, excise duty fraud, VAT fraud, corruption and money laundering.

The Observatory has produced a range of publications relating to its work and to specific issues regarding IP and infringements.
