This study proposes a qualitative exploratory analysis, through 18 in-depth interviews, on the counterfeiting phenomenon in order to investigate the effects, the strategic, operational and organizational measures taken by companies operating in the fashion goods sectors committed to combating the phenomenon globally. From a careful analysis of the literature and from the conducted interviews, it becomes evident how companies adopt four fundamental strategic and operational decisions (in terms of protection, cooperation, prosecution and in-formation) and specific organizational structures (in terms of brand protection location within the firm). The threat of online counterfeiting, the so called "China trap" and the legislation enforcement emerge as the challenges that these companies are facing today and will have to face in the near future.
Keywords: Counterfeiting, Anti-Counterfeiting Strategies, Anti-Counterfeiting Instruments, Anti-Counterfeiting Actions, Brand Protection Manager, Intellectual Property Specialist.
