Wilson, J. M., & Heinonen, J. A. (2010). The A-CAPPP Product Counterfeiting Incident Database: a resource for advancing research and policy.

The creation of a national product counterfeiting incident database allows researchers a unique opportunity to generate evidence-based anti-counterfeiting strategy through the analysis of data and evidence. Integrating the tenets of crime prevention theory and problem analysis, it employs a systematic process to identify U.S.-related incidents of product counterfeiting across industry sectors and compile and code open-source information. The approach establishes the first-ever foundation for continued empirical investigation into the products, perpetrators, victims and criminal justice agencies involved in product counterfeiting.
