Intellectual property

EIF Dinner Debate


The increasing problem of global property rights protection and growing trade in counterfeit goods raises serious concerns for both countries of supply and those where demand is high.

How can international cooperation initiatives be translated in practice, to successfully combat counterfeiting? And what can and should be done at international and European level to improve the situation on the ground? These were some of the main questions that were addressed during this dinner discussion.
