Cost of Counterfeit

15 01 2013

I found this infograph from a LinkedIn group I am a part of. I tried to watch the CBC documentary on it, but it wasn’t working. It is an hour long, so if you can get it to work, I am sure it is awesome! Here’s the LINK. Below is a brief description. On the website, below the video, you can also take a quiz. I took it,  enjoyed it, and learned a lot! Beside the quiz is a “spot the counterfeit” test. Pretty cool stuff!

Counterfeit Culture is a one-hour documentary that explores the dangerous and sometimes deadly world of fake, fraudulent, and faux products. The imitation industry has a long history of peddled knock-off designer handbags, watches, and shoes but during the last 25 years, it has mushroomed into a global phenomenon. The traffic in counterfeit goods is now estimated at a staggering $700 billion representing nearly 10% of all global trade. Shot on location in Canada, the USA, Asia, and Europe, Counterfeit Culture challenges consumers to take a deeper look at what would appear to be harmless knock-offs at bargain prices.
