Counterfeiting means to imitate something.  Pirating or "piracy" is the theft of copyrighted materials.  Infringement is the use of copyrighted materials without the owners permission.  All of them are not only criminal acts but can carry very serious civil penalties.  Stealth Investigations's anti-counterfeit task force actively seeks out copyright violations and infringement of intellectual property.  Stealth Investigations has saved companies millions of dollars by stopping counterfeiting and theft of trade secrets.
