Counterfeiting and Piracy and the Swedish Economy

Making Sure "Made in Sweden" Always Is

image of Counterfeiting and Piracy and the Swedish Economy

The Swedish economy is innovative and rich in intellectual property (IP), with nearly every industry either producing or using IP. Swedish innovative industries are also export-dependent and very deeply integrated in the global economy, through active participation in global value chains. At the same time, the threats of counterfeiting and piracy are growing – and Sweden is vulnerable. This report measures the direct economic effects of counterfeiting on Swedish industry, government and consumers. It examines both the impact of the imports of fake products to Sweden and – more importantly – the impact of the global trade in fake products that infringe on the IP rights of Swedish innovative companies.

Foreword

Sweden is an advanced, knowledge-based economy that produces highly valued products and services that benefit significantly from intellectual property. Sweden has an open economy, actively participating in global value chains. While these are features of a modern, dynamic economy, they also make Sweden vulnerable to the global risks of counterfeiting and piracy.
