"Parallel importation" refers to the practice of unauthorised importers importing into Australia branded goods that were intended by the brand owner to be sold overseas but not in Australia.  The goods are not counterfeit – they are simply goods which have been approved for sale only in certain countries.  Unauthorised parallel importation and sale of "grey market" goods often compete with the business of an authorised Australian distributor of the same branded goods.
