Knockoff exposes the truth behind the fakes and uncovers the shocking consequences of dealing in counterfeit goods. Traveling across the globe, Tim Phillips shows that counterfeiting isn't a victimless crime; it is an illegal global industry undermining the world's economies. Based on interviews with victims, investigators, and the people who sell counterfeits, Knockoff reveals the link between what we see as ""innocent"" fakes and organized crime. Phillips describes in detail how the counterfeiters' criminal network costs jobs, cripples developing countries, breeds corruption and violence, and kills thousands of people every year. He shows that by turning a blind eye to the problem, we become accomplices to theft, extortion, and murder.
