In the field of intellectual property and, especially, of industrial property, commercial counterfeiting of the trademark, patent etc.., is a major threat to world economy and it presents serious threats to consumer safety and health. Given the scale and the impact of this phenomenon, all available measures should be used in order to fight against it. The efforts made in order to combat counterfeiting in the field of intellectual property require continuity in the law enforcement for public awareness. However, corrections are required in the areas of legislative harmonization and consumer education, in the sense of easily distinguishing the counterfeited items of an object in order to immediately notify the criminal prosecution.
