Sales on the Internet grow fast each year and at the same time sales of counterfeit and illegal products grow fast too cause material damage and reputational risks to famous brands.
In some areas sales of the counterfeit and illegal products reach 90% volume of total selling on the market.
This problem has become a global problem and it affects almost all product groups. The struggle against such a global phenomenon is not already the matter of prestige but the matter of business surviving in general. Certainly Ukrainian market is not so attractive for world-wide brands companies but ignoring the problem becomes already impossible. More and more new sellers appear on the market every day that use the situation for their own benefits and complete absence of a legal control. The State doesn’t deal with the problem of growing illicit trade and it becomes more global and penetrates into all consumption aspects in the country.
