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 and 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.

Attend the 16th Anti-Counterfeiting & Brand Protection – West Coast Summit to learn how your brand can expand and enhance its legal and brand protection arsenal to fight the global battle against trademark infringement.
