      • The emergence of ecommerce has opened the world to anyone who wishes to sell a product or service. The barriers to entry have been significantly reduced, as long as one has an internet place to sell their goods and can avail themselves of relatively cheap and easy, worldwide shipping services. Unfortunately, it has become very easy for anyone to take your graphic images, reverse engineer your product and find a very inexpensive corner of the world to manufacture it. Before long, you will find yourself competing against thousands offering counterfeits of your product, at significantly reduced prices.
      • What can you do? This course will introduce you to the factors you should consider in assessing your risk. It will introduce things that you can do to protect yourself and discuss steps that you might take if you find your company is being victimized.
