The liability of shop owners

Like many other developing countries, Brazil is engaged in a war against piracy, with different initiatives and strategies being executed by public and private entities to strike at the giant industry of counterfeited products, which is worth up to $460 billion annually worldwide, according to OECD’s 2018 report (an increase of 36% from 2016’s report). In Brazil, the losses caused by piracy are currently estimated at around $30 billion annually.
