In this week’s episode of the “Power Kid Podcast,” host Phil Albritton of Power Kid Design speaks with Robert Cook, sales manager at Verisk Financial G2.

Cook and his team help manufacturers protect themselves from the ever-present risk of knockoffs, counterfeit, and copycat products. They also provide guidance to assist companies in their efforts to avoid copycat situations in the first place.

During the show, Cook and Albritton discuss the staggering extent to which copycats run rampant in the toy industry and the dangers that counterfeit products pose to kids. Additionally, the duo discusses the conversations that should be had between inventors and manufacturers, and how the industry as a whole should be educating consumers about knockoff products.
