Fight against fakes: Impressive increase of customs actions to enforce intellectual property rights.
In 2010, EU Customs took action in nearly 80,000 cases, totalling more than 103 million products suspected of violating intellectual property rights (IPR) at the EU's external borders. According to the Commission's annual report on EU Customs enforcement of IPR published today, the number of shipments stopped by customs almost doubled compared to last year, rising from 43,500 in 2009 to almost 80,000 in 2010.
