IEC brochure: Counterfeiting in electrical and electronic products

Link to IEC_Counterfeiting_brochure_LR.pdf

Counterfeiting and piracy have grown into a global business estimated to exceed US $650 billion/year,
with more than half of the products moving through international trade channels (2008).
Counterfeit electrical and electronic products now occupy second place after pharmaceuticals…
nothing is safe from counterfeiting. While the appearance and packaging can be very convincing,
the products themselves are often sub-standard and may represent a severe safety hazard,
causing accidents and costing lives.
