[Report] IP Crime report 2010 - 2011
The term ‘intellectual property crime’ (IP crime) is used to describe certain types of infringement of intellectual property rights(IPRs).The wilful infringement of registered trade marks (also known as counterfeiting) and the unauthorised copying and use of material protected by copyright (piracy), are both criminal offences, and are most often prosecuted where such acts are carried out on a commercial scale and/or for direct (or indirect) commercial gain. IP crime does not, in the UK, include infringement of patents or design rights. However, not all infringements of trade marks or copyright will amount to criminal offences; some acts will only be civil infringements, such as the unauthorised downloading of digital files from the internet.
