Dennis Collopy has four decades of experience in intellectual property issues. His recent work examines what current data can tell us about counterfeiting, particularly on social media. Much of this work stems from research commissioned by the United Kingdom Intellectual Property Office. 


Collopy’s review of the enforcement data landscape analyzes international research on counterfeiting and piracy from 2014 to 2020. It assesses a new physical goods tracker that may help build a unique long-term data set of consumer attitudes toward counterfeits.
