DIIP to track Counterfeiting and Piracy [India]

With counterfeiting and piracy costing about US $250 million annually, protection of Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) has become tremendously essential for all corporations as it directly affects economic stability of the growing economies.

The DIIP [Database on International Intellectual Property], DIIIP is an initiative taken by Interpol and the US Chamber of Commerce, which gives access to law enforcement, government and industry to work together to more effectively detect and investigate the criminal networks engaged in IPR related crimes. The objectives of DIIP are to identify links between criminal groups, use the information in investigations and production of global strategic reports. With huge demographic advantage, India has the challenge to train people and provide opportunities to benchmark against global innovative practices.
