Interview with Dr Robert E. Kahn, Chairman, CEO and President, Corporation for National Research Initiatives (CNRI). Topics covered: What is Digital Object Architecture (DOA)?; How can DOA be used to combat counterfeit ICT products and devices?; What more can governments and the corporate sector do to combat the spread of fake counterfeit ICT products and devices?; What outcomes do you expect to see from the meeting hosted by ITU on counterfeit ICT products and devices ?
Substandard and fake ICT products are a serious issue that impacts developed and developing economies, the ICT industry, as well as the consumer population around the world. The costs and negative effects of substandard and fake ICT products on all stakeholders are broad and numerous—ranging from lost taxes, royalties and other revenues; decreased sales, prices and operations; erosion of brand value, goodwill and reputation; reduced incentive to innovate and invest; lower employment and economic growth rates; network disruptions and interoperability challenges resulting in poor quality of service delivery and reception; and risks to health, safety and environment. According to the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), the value of counterfeit products globally is expected to exceed USD 1.7 trillion by 2015. For further information visit: www.itu.int
