Counterfeit goods and piracy spans across all industries, from film, games, TV and music to clothes, shoes, laptops and mobile phones.

Many think buying or consuming this content is harmless, however it is not a victimless crime.

Counterfeit goods and pirated content not only affect big businesses and the UK economy, but the losses they cause have a grave negative impact on the thousands of people employed in those industries, contributing to rental and retail store closures, loss of jobs and a growing threat to future investment.

You may think there is no harm in a cheaper, inferior product but both fake goods and piracy pose risks to consumers. Follow our consumer advice to ensure you stay safe and legal.

FACT works with Crimestoppers to make it as easy as possible for you to report criminal activity related to the manufacture, distribution and sale of counterfeit goods as well as pirated digital content such as films, TV and sports.

You can contact Crimestoppers anonymously by calling 0800 555 111 or filling out an online Giving Information Form.
