Title: Combating counterfeit goods entering Kosovo : [presentation given on November 16, 2011]
Author: Batusha, Zana
Abstract: This capstone project assesses the impact of counterfeit goods imported into Kosovo. Over the past twelve years, Kosovo Customs has been fighting smuggling of goods, mainly for two reasons: protecting legitimate trade and collecting more revenue. Although it is known that low economic growth drives the need for more taxes in order for the state institutions to function, limited attention was given to the protection of citizens from counterfeited goods. In 2010 some progress was achieved regarding the enforcement of Intellectual Property Rights (IPR), but even this had limited impact concerning the protection of public health. However, the need to balance the collection of customs revenue, facilitating the trade and protecting the citizens from counterfeit goods remains crucial. Therefore this report assesses combating counterfeiting, not because of profitability or protection of an innovation, but mainly because of some counterfeit commodities threats public health ... This capstone project provides recommendations on how to enhance the facilities for detecting counterfeited goods.
