One Perspective on Anti-Counterfeiting: From T-Shirts in the Basement to Global Trade
In the space allotted me, I shall try my best to give the reader
a particular perspective on the growth of counterfeiting and the
similar growth of the anti-counterfeiting industry. I may be
somewhat better equipped to do this than most simply by reason of having been, to my knowledge, one of a very small group of attorneys who found themselves confronted by issues of fake T-shirts and the like back in about 1979. While the timeline is clear, the events over the years may be less so. I apologize in advance to those who have worked with me for any errors in time or otherwise.
