The value of intellectual property to a company is increasing as quickly as the threats to it, according to the Global Fraud Report released by Kroll earlier this month. Counterfeiting and piracy problems are not new, the report found, but they are increasingly important for brand-conscious companies.
Kroll, a global-risk consulting firm, issues a yearly report on fraud issues. That report is followed up with a quarterly focus on a specific aspect of the problem. Intellectual property fraud issues are so widespread that it was chosen as the focus for the most recent report.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
