Owners of IP rights and all companies active in the international trade, need to set up a suitable, efficient and cost-effective strategy and find solutions to fight against these phenomena of illicit trade.
The trade of illicit goods, from counterfeits to parallel imports and grey markets, forced or child labor, environmental crimes and smuggling, continues to cause significant concerns not only for the general public, as it jeopardizes consumer safety and health, but also for owners of IP rights.
The legal framework for fighting counterfeits is well-established. However, the phenomenon of counterfeiting and illegal trade in general appears to be far from being brought under control. The growth of e-commerce has amplified online brand infringement on platforms, domain names, app stores, filesharing sites as well as on social media. Other aspects of illicit trade, such as forced or child labor, environmental crimes and smuggling are even more difficult to control.
Therefore, owners of IP rights and all companies active in the international trade, need to set up a suitable, efficient and cost-effective strategy and find solutions to fight against these phenomena of illicit trade; and we think that they can! Join our IP event and meet other in-house IP professionals to discuss how to effectively fight illicit trade by using state of the art technology and knowledge.
