The Audiovisual Anti-Piracy Alliance (AAPA) is leading the fight against audiovisual piracy across Europe and the Middle East, supporting law enforcement and building partnerships to better tackle piracy. AAPA seeks to raise awareness in its efforts to discourage piracy. In a new report, commissioned by AAPA and conducted by Bournemouth University entitled "IPTV Piracy – The Impact of Illicit IPTV in Europe", it is estimated that EUR 1.06 billion of unlawful revenue was generated by copyright infringing IPTV providers in Europe in 2021.
ICCE is pleased to announce the release of a new short video which aims to help raise awareness about the important role that law enforcement agencies play in helping to tackle the growing issue of counterfeit imaging products such as toner and ink cartridges and ribbons.
With counterfeit imaging supplies costing $3bn to the global economy, now more than ever, coordinated action is needed in the fight against fakes. With insight from Interpol and HM Revenue & Customs, the video shows how better coordination of intelligence through industry bodies such as ICCE and improved training and collaboration between ICCE and law enforcement agencies is achieving significant results.
ICCE was formed in 1997 to provide an industry-wide response to tackle the growing threat of counterfeit supplies within the imaging supplies industry across Europe, Middle East and Africa. It is a non-profit making association with ten members: Brother, Canon, Epson, Hewlett-Packard, Kyocera, Lexmark, OKI, Samsung and Xerox. If you have any questions, please contact ICCE by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information, please visit www.icce.net or follow ICCE on Twitter (@ICCEfightsfakes).
