Piracy and Counterfeiting: Not Victimless Crimes

The article, focusing on the severe impacts and effects piracy and counterfeiting have on the economy, was authored by Partner Stefanos Tsimikalis and was published in the May-June 2016, issue of Business Partners, the official magazine of the American-Hellenic Chamber of Commerce.

The article focuses on the recent studies conducted by the European Patent Office jointly with the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (EUIPO) and the European Observatory on Infringements of Intellectual Property Rights and their results, which clearly illustrate that the importance of Intellectual Property Rights is still not widely accepted by the broader consumer audience.
