The Role of International Private Organisations in the Fight Against Illicit Trade The Case of the INTA Anti-Piracy Committee By Claudette Vernot: Illicit trade is a global problem that threatens economies and public health. Effective combat against this issue requires a collaborative approach between governments and private organisations. This article highlights the vital role of international private organisations, especially the International Trademark Association (INTA) Anti-Piracy Committee, in addressing illicit trade.

Governments alone cannot tackle all the complexities of illicit trade. They need support from private organisations to enhance their efforts. The INTA Anti-Counterfeiting Committee exemplifies such collaboration by working closely with governments, guilds, and associations to protect intellectual property and promote fair market practices.

Contributions of Private Organisations Private associations play a crucial role in combating illicit trade by promoting ethical business practices, such as fair trade and environmental responsibility. They provide tools, training, and cooperation in skill-building and analysis, which are essential for addressing the challenges of illicit trade.

Enforcing intellectual property rights demands understanding the evolving dynamics of crimes and implementing practical regulations. Ongoing training for authorities is also crucial.
