Plagiarism and counterfeiting are damaging to reputation and often endanger security. That is why the Aktion Plagiarius eV annually selects retailers and manufacturers of particularly brazen counterfeits with the negative price of the same name "Plagiarius"
Counterfeiting is not a problem in a single industry or niche - the “winners” of the plagiarism also show this. The products come from a wide variety of industries, from household appliances to pet accessories to lights.
