We're at a wishing well. We also know that just because the US suggests something to the world, it doesn't necessarily mean they'l oblige or follow.

Hopefully it will benefit the customer in terms of quality of their goods by at least legitimately eliminating the counterfeit devices.

I'm with @SP "Every country has different laws when it comes to counterfeiting."

This is a major stumbling block. The electronics industry  play in global, hyper-interconnected economy, but yet is subject to hundreds of different provincial laws. Perhaps, though, with US backing this, other governments will require similar checks. But it will be a slow process to get uniformity around this worldwide.

FlyingScott - That is always one of the key questions with these kinds of legislation. One is "how much will this be enforced?", and another is "how much can I get away with before I'm caught?"

Eldredge,WaqasAltaf - I agree. I think costs will come down to the consumer, but like you said, I hope this does also compel a closer look at part and device quality, which at the end of the line, means the consumer also gets a better product.

"Can we prevent the crime before even knowing how they are going to do it? Law enforcement will always be one step behind... Sadly."

Roques, prevention is possible, but things are happened because of negligence and irresponsibility from the screening department. If needed, they can easily filter out counterfeit components at initial stage itself.

When something goes global its diffcult to control when and where things go wrong. Every country has different laws when it comes to counterfeiting. Some advanced countries take it seriously but in many countries its not even considered crime and the law fights can go for years. That is the whole reason why nothing concrete can be done.

"In reality, there are many manufacturers who are aware that the products they make do include some of the counterfeit parts. It is irrelevant whether they themselves initiated to buy a counterfeit or the distributor supplied a counterfeit and they did not argue because it was must cheaper."

Waqas, I think only small and medium scale industries will entertain such things. Most of the products from such industries are of medium quality and hence adding counterfeit components won't matter much. But for high quality products, it can degrade the performance at various scenarios.

I am not sure how broadly this will be accepted unless the system is policed feverishly and severe punitive measures are put in place.  It is a tricky problem but one that really needs addressed however.
