Journalist and writer Paul Paradise gives an in-depth examination of what's been called the business crime wave of the 21st century--a trend that is already absorbing 5-7 percent of the world's commerce and billions of dollars from the U.S. economy. He explores the history of the problem, how counterfeiting and piracy are done, and how U.S. businesses are trying to battle it. With interviews, commentary, and anecdotes by corporate attorneys, business leaders, and private investigators, Paradise shows what is behind this appalling criminal industry, that ranges from t-shirts and watches to pharmaceuticals and airplane parts. This is an important, well-written study for anyone interested in world trade and the damage that violations of intellectual property laws can inflict.

​Das Phänomen der Produktpiraterie als existenzbedrohendes Risiko im Allgemeinen ist heute ebenso unbestritten wie dessen faktischer Einfluss auf den industriellen Wettbewerb im Besonderen. Dementsprechend muss das systematische Management dieses Unternehmensrisikos heute Gegenstand der strategischen Planung und Steuerung sein. Während früher noch die mangelnde Verfügbarkeit konkreter Schutzmaßnahmen sowie Schwierigkeiten bei deren Umsetzung als maßgebliche Ursache für den fehlenden Bekämpfungserfolg herangeführt werden konnten, scheint heute ein besseres Verständnis in Bezug auf die wettbewerbliche Problematik der Produktpiraterie ein wesentlicher Schlüssel zur Verbesserung der Planungssituation zu sein. Oliver Kleine liefert einen einführenden, aber ganzheitlichen Überblick zu den im Rahmen des Managements industrieller Produktpiraterie relevanten Sachverhalten.

"This four-volume set introduces, on the management side, principles and procedures of economics, budgeting and finance; leadership; governance; communication; business law and ethics; and human resources practices; all in the sports context. On the marketing side this reference resource explores two broad streams: marketing of sport and of sport-related products (promoting a particular team or selling team- and sport-related merchandise, for example), and using sports as a platform for marketing non-sports products, such as celebrity endorsements of a particular brand of watch or the corporate sponsorship of a tennis tournament. Together, these four volumes offer a comprehensive and authoritative overview of the state of sports management and marketing today, providing an invaluable print or online resource for student researchers"--

Corporate Risk and Governance addresses corporate risk management and governance requirements affecting large organizations in all industry sectors and countries. The book strongly advocates implementation of Corporate Governance Codes, ISO 31000 Risk Management, ISO 22301 Business Continuity Management and PAS 200 Crisis Management but warns against treating any standard or model slavishly, as if it can offer easy salvation or a simple route to a risk nirvana. Alan Waring challenges many hallowed beliefs, attitudes and practices that continue to hamper the delivery of effective Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) and thereby good governance. Those boardroom and corporate cultures that are complacent about risk exposures and risk management or, worse, encourage ‘chancers’ and a ‘what can we get away with’ attitude, are examined in depth along with what is required to embed a culture of responsible risk-taking. Some 75 cases from around the world provide graphic examples and lessons to be learned. Although the text includes some summary practical guidance, this book is designed primarily as a thinking aid rather than a risk management cookbook. It is something to encourage better informed risk-decision making; a more informed view of enterprise risk exposures, control and mitigation issues and an awareness of boardroom and corporate culture issues and their impact on effective ERM.

Sport is filled with much paradox. Sport, by nature, is inherently based on athleticism, fitness, strength, and other seemingly healthful benefits. Though such benefits are common, there is the constant presence where the unhealthy and inappropriate associations exist. This dichotomy is quite prevalent in many forms in contemporary sport. Among the most troubling occurrence with contemporary sport is the increasingly visible prevalence of criminal behaviors associated with sport. This text seeks to examine some of the most relevant and thought provoking occurrence of criminal and quasi-criminal behavior in sport. Through identifying pertinent issues, including motives and causes associated with such actions, this work aims to present a comprehensive view at these issues while providing regarding ways such matters can be effectively dealt with in contemporary society. Among the topics to be addressed in this work include: drug issues, violence, gambling, ticket scalping, hazing, fraud in nonprofit sport, homeland security issues and disaster preparedness in sport, intellectual property (trademark law, copyright misappropriation, and criminal implications), and beyond.
