Seven to 10 percent of all the high-tech products sold worldwide are counterfeits, it's estimated. In 2004, U.S. Customs seized $200 million in counterfeit goods, $134 million of which originated in China. Trade in counterfeit goods cost U.S. businesses an estimated $2 billion per year in copyright losses alone.
