Counterfeit consumer goods are goods, often of inferior quality, made or sold under another's brand name without the brand owner’s authorization. Sellers of such goods may infringe on either the trademark, patent or copyright of the brand owner by passing off its goods as made by the brand owner. :3 Counterfeit products made up 5 to 7% of world trade in 2013, and in 2014 cost an estimated 2. 5 million jobs worldwide, with up to 750,000 jobs lost in the U. S. About 5% of goods imported into the European Union in 2013 were fakes, according to the OECD. Less developed countries such as India have also been inundated with counterfeit products.
