There are sufficient laws on intellectual property in the Philippines. The laws provide stiffer penalties and sufficient basis for civil, administrative and criminal actions against counterfeiters. Despite this, counterfeiting and piracy are continuing primarily due to profits derive from the illegal activity. There are a number of other reasons: the availability of sophisticated technology required to produce fake products, the almost limitless capitals of syndicates who are mainly behind the illegal activities, and the government authorities' inadequate technical skills in determining counterfeit goods.
