$24 million in fake cartridges seized in Dubai

$24 million in fake cartridges seized in Dubai

August 28, 2015

Dubai fakesIn what appears to be the second raid in quick succession, Dh75 million worth of fake printers and ink cartridges have been seized.

Emirates247news reported on the impounded products, which included “reputed brand names including HP” according to Ibrahim Behzad, Director of the Intellectual Property Rights Department in the CCCP (Commercial Compliance and Consumer Protection), which carried out the raid.

Examining and classifying the Dh75 million ($20.4 million /€18.1 million) confiscated goods took over 10 hours, with a full report eventually being sent to the trademark owner. The raid follows another seizure in the emirate, where two million counterfeit cartridges were found.

The CCCP, a section of the Department of Economic Development (DED) in Dubai, raided a warehouse in the emirate and seized more than half a million pieces of duplicate printers and ink cartridges. Specialised teams have been carrying out regular campaigns and spot inspections in the city, penalising infringers and destroying fake products.

Glenn Jones, Anti-Counterfeiting Manager of HP EMEA, said: “We are grateful to the UAE authorities for their support and assistance in tackling counterfeiting and removing such products from both local and overseas market.”
