GLOBAL MARKET

Countries and companies are continuing to open up new markets and opportunities for their goods and services. This requires the legal and administrative controls to be across many international borders. Multiple legal and regulatory boundaries make it almost impossible for Brand Owners to control their rights without assistance.

Advances in technology and globalisation have destroyed traditional geographic market boundaries… Not only for companies but for counterfeiters as well as others who specialise in diverted and grey market goods.

Recent technology has improved rapidly… placing many copying and reproduction techniques in the hands of unscrupulous people.

They reproduce unauthorised products and product packaging…which allows inferior goods to be sold into global markets at prices beyond their value.

The trademarks and brands are their invaluable counterfeit currency. The loyal brand consumer is left unprotected and dissatisfied with their purchase. The brands are being left with damaged reputations.

Sales are lost and product liability issues arise!
The solution: The consumer needs protection… the brand owner needs professional assistance and protection.

COUNTERFEITING

A Major Worldwide Problem

Counterfeiting, forgery and piracy of high-value brand-name products have reached epidemic proportions worldwide.

The cost to American business alone is about $200 billion in lost revenues and more than 750,000 lost jobs each year. Globally, the losses are far greater - accounting for an estimated five to eight percent of total world trade.

No matter what type of premium products you produce and sell - software, microchips, designer clothing and accessories, collectibles, fine art, financial instruments, videos, recorded music, baby food, perfume and more - chances are there's a high-margin, low risk counterfeiter hard at work flooding and undercutting your market with cheap imitations.

Pirates may even be diverting your legitimately produced products to unauthorised outlets, robbing you of valuable inventory and hard-earned profits.

The fact is… most anti-counterfeiting technology has failed to keep pace with the technological skills and inventiveness of these enterprising corporate thieves.

Sophisticated corporate holograms and refractive technologies, for example, have been quickly and widely counterfeited. In fact, there's been no visible or invisible marker that couldn't be copied or removed…Until Now!!
