12:00 PM WORKSHOP B: CUSTOMS AND BORDER PROTECTION: COMBATING CROSS-BORDER TRADE IN COUNTERFEIT GOODS

Counterfeiting is a global problem that cannot be handled or resolved by just one entity. The most effective way to thwart worldwide counterfeiting comes through collaboration between law enforcement, government agencies, industry organizations and brand owners. In this workshop we will share effective practices and provide you with a checklist that will enable you to be proactive in developing an anti‐counterfeiting strategy and working with CBP to effectively enforce your rights at the border. Leave this workshop understanding how to effectively forge a collaborative working relationship with law enforcement that meets anti-counterfeiting objectives.

Topics will include:
  • Effective ways to record and provide notice of registered rights with customs in order to obtain seizures
  • The type of information that rights holders need to provide CBP’s to provide them with the knowledge of what products are authentic vs. counterfeit
  • Analysis of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection interim rule to allow information
