Hollis, M. E., Fejes, Z. L., Fenoff, R., & Wilson, J. M. . Routine activities and product counterfeiting: a research note. International Journal of Comparative and Applied Criminal Justice, 39(3), 2015.

Abstract: Product counterfeiting has only recently emerged as an area of research interest for
criminal justice and criminology scholars. As a consequence, criminological research
and application of criminological theory to this phenomenon is limited at this time.
This article proposes that routine activities theory provides an excellent framework for
understanding the product counterfeiting phenomenon. The article reviews the basic
tenets and concept of the theory, provides a brief review of the existing criminological
literature that addresses product counterfeiting with special attention on the theoretical
perspectives that have been applied until now, maps out a general framework for the
application of routine activities theory to product counterfeiting, and identifies key
indicators used to study product counterfeiting from a routine activities perspective. It
concludes with a discussion on how this framework will enhance the understanding of
the crime and identifies new avenues for research.

Keywords: product counterfeiting, routine activities theory, criminology, crime prevention
