Printers included in counterfeit raids

Printers included in counterfeit raids

April 4, 2017

Dubai authorities seized three million counterfeit products in four raids, including printers.

Out-Law reported on the seizures of “more than three million counterfeit” products from “over 30 brands” in raids “on four warehouses”, with products seized including “phone accessories, handbags, clothes, leather goods, ink, printers, cosmetics, watches and contact lenses”. The raids took “more than 48 hours”, as officials “screened and sorted out each product to ensure transparency and impartiality in the process”.

Ibrahim Bahzad, Director of Intellectual Property Rights Protection for the Economic Development Government department, Dubai Economy, commented that the teams “took 14 days to investigate and act after receiving information on the counterfeits”, while the raids “reaffirm the role of the intellectual property rights protection team in safeguarding trademarks against any infringement.

“Dubai Economy is committed to translating the directives and vision of the government of Dubai to promote economic activity. Combatting commercial fraud and protecting goods and services against duplicating their brand or logo are part of the strategic objective of Dubai Economy to improve confidence among businesses and investors and enhance overall competitiveness in Dubai.

“People promoting and selling counterfeits use innovative tricks. Some of them import the goods in pieces and then assemble it here, and they even use remote or misleading locations to stock such goods. We work closely with global brands to train our inspectors in identifying counterfeits and we update trademark owners on local developments in combatting counterfeiting”.
