It is described as the crime of the 21st century. Counterfeiting of key brands continues to grow seemingly out of control in virtually every industry sector. In the pharmaceuticals industry, the percentage of counterfeit prescription medicines in the world is estimated to be 8-10%, equating to $80+ billion annually in lost revenue for brand owners and creating a serious public health risk.  Can we, operating in the legitimate supply chain, thwart the efforts of the counterfeiters and gray market diverters or are we simply innocent victims of these profiteering criminals?  Ron takes a cynical look at the vulnerabilities of the pharma supply chain through the eyes of a counterfeiter and discusses counter-measures.
