ABSTRACT
An interview with Tony Swaffield, director of brand production at New Era Cap Co., is presented. When asked about how the globalization of trade has complicated efforts to fight counterfeiting, Swaffield comments on the ease of replicating goods with technology. He explains how the company has reduced counterfeits through daily factory raids and by developing good relationships with local officials. Swaffield believes anti-counterfeiting devices on products also help deter illegal activities.
