In 2010 the Intellectual Property (IP) Rights Programme saw a significant increase in demands from INTERPOL member countries and other public and private sector stakeholders. This was accompanied by a corresponding increase in the number of countries providing police information on counterfeiting and piracy, up from 106 at the end of 2009 to 145. The net result is that 77% of INTERPOL’s 188 member countries are now directly affected by IP crime, with 48% of these cases being transnational by nature, as they affect two or more countries. In addition, 18% are connected to other types of organised crime such as drug or people trafficking.
