Hi, This is how I would write it with minor corrections.. Take care! Regards The production of counterfeit is rising. Top brand names are being reproduced illegally all over the world and billions of dollars are being lost each year in tax revenue. This black market, in fact, represents 5% of the world's trade. Frequently counterfeit goods are bought by people who think they are original products. Those suspecting they aren't, buy them because of the price. Fake perfume, for instance, can be bought at a quarter of the price of the original one. Top companies are complaining that their reputations are damaged by inferior products, and although new anti-counterfeiting laws have been introduced in Europe, situation has not improved. This is partly because production of counterfeit goods are organized by some of the most sophisticated criminal organization in the world.

ARE damaged "HAVE BEEN introduced" is better ARE organized Others correct. You have done well with passive forms. You need to improve your selection of tenses to ensure that they are appropriate to the context. This one is tricky: "In fact, 5% of the world's trade is represented(represent) by this black market." Native speakers would probably not use the passive here. "represent" has another common meaning (act on behalf) which makes more sense in the passive. Your sentence should be: "This black market, in fact, represents 5% of the world's trade."
