Counterfeit goods seized by the U.S. government are shown on display at the National Intellectual Property Rights Coordination Center. The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development estimates the amount of counterfeit goods and pirated copyrights in world trade grew from about $100 billion in 2001 to about $250 billion in 2007, the last year for which they have made an estimate.
