Assistance and support to Italian enterprisesin the fight against counterfeitingRome, October the 5th, 2010

Speaker: Isabella Flajban

Ministry of Economic Development

Directorate General for the fight against Counterfeiting -

Italian Patent and Trademark Office

slide3

Global impact ofCOUNTERFEITING

presents important economic consequences, especially in these hard times…

is strongly related to other criminal activities such as trade in narcotics, money laundering and terrorism

causes the consumers

significant risks…

slide4

COUNTERFEITING

is a clandestine activity

so it is very hard to obtain

accurate statistics on it…

and to elaborate adequate

fighting strategies…

slide5

As reported in the OCDE Report on the Economic Impact of Counterfeiting and Piracy (2008) “the overall degree to which products are being counterfeited and pirated is unknown and there do not appear to be any methodologies that could be employed to develop an acceptable overall estimate.”

BUT

“insights can be gained through an examination of various types of information, including data on enforcement and information developed through surveys”.

slide6

In 1997, the Counterfeiting Intelligence Bureau of the International Chamber of Commerce indicated that the overall cost of counterfeiting in the world was about 5% to 7% of world trade

The EU Report (2009) indicates that the number of goods, suspected of infringing IPR rights, detained in 2009 decreased to 118 ml. articles, compared to the 178 ml. articles recorded in 2008

According to the Report elaborated in 2009 by CENSIS, counterfeitingin Italy has a revenue of 7 billions of Euros, causes a loss for the State Budget of 5 billions of Euros and the loss of about 130.000 jobs…

the problem of its potential impact is far greater for smes

The problem of its potential impact is far greater for SMEs

SMEs are invariably less well resourced;

SMEs cannot afford to employ lawyers to represent them in the Courts;

SMEs are not able to make use of an in-house legal team;

SMEs often don’t understand that it is essential to register the Intellectual Property;

SMEs don’t know that patents or trade marks provide protection only in home markets and are not valid for example for China…

slide8

Italy is the European Country with the greater number of SMEs (5.280.743,00 on June 2010) whereof n. 547.529 in manufacturing industry

OTHER HIGHLIGHTS…

Over 25% of the total amount of Italian enterprises’ workers are employed in the manufacturing sector;

About 93% of Italian enterprises that export abroad are small enterprises;

Italian SMEs export is about 72% (in value) of the total.

slide9

So we can say that…the Italian economy is driven in large part by the manufacture of high-quality consumer goods produced by small and medium-sized enterprises that export abroad
