The Intellectual Property Office has issued a video setting out the dangers of buying counterfeit goods this Christmas.
Counterfeiting can be defined as the manufacture, importation, distribution and sale of products which falsely carry the trade mark of a genuine brand without permission and for gain or loss to another. Counterfeits can bring many dangers to us as consumers. From fake alcohol to children’s costumes…if it can be made, it can be counterfeited. Make sure you understand the risks.
Do you really know what you’re getting for Christmas?
We recently broadcast live talking about IP crime and the dangers and impact of buying counterfeit goods in the run up to Christmas.
