Enhanced Anti-Counterfeiting Strategies & Partnerships to Effectively Impact Your Brand Protection Initiatives
Despite all the efforts you put forth to reduce trademark infringement and counterfeiting upon your brand; the fight continues. In today’s price-competitive marketplace, no brand is exempt from being counterfeited--- and almost every brand is an equal opportunity TARGET for counterfeiters at a global level.
With counterfeited products, knock-offs, grey market, and diversion activities still on the rise, your teams need to rev up their anti-counterfeiting, brand & trademark protection efforts.
With the ever-evolving capabilities the Internet affords counterfeiters, no longer can you focus all your anti-counterfeiting efforts toward border controls and brick & mortar illicit activities. In order to mitigate the effects of IP Infringement in the modern marketplace, you must effectively collaborate with a wide variety of IP and brand protection thought-leaders, In-House and Outside Counsel, Investigation Experts and many others; in order to combat the prevalence of global illicit trade pervading the WORLD wide web.
