A collaborative effort to track and stop brand counterfeiting. Share your story!
Brand Larceny was created by two industry professionals and business colleagues, Terri Goldstein and Joe Gioconda—one creative brander, one intellectual property lawyer who, for decades, have been battling brand infringement from two different angles. Their proprietary approach to intellectual property and brand protection has benefitted companies the world over. Now, they’re looking to share their unique insights with consumers and professionals. To announce their upcoming book, Brand Larceny: The Trillion Dollar Heist, they launched this website to give voice to consumers, protect lawful companies and advocate for brand owners.
