Combat counterfeiting

Counterfeiting and piracy are particularly harmful to companies and their brands. Unfortunately, trade in counterfeit and pirated products continues to grow. The internet certainly plays an important role in this. . Nowadays, it is very easy to set up a temporary webshop, sell counterfeit goods behind an anonymous facade and then disappear.

We are very active in the field of IP rights and e-commerce. This combination of expertise helps us to regularly assist companies in counterfeit cases.

When it comes to counterfeit goods, prevention is certainly better than cure. This means that, as an entrepreneur, you must ensure optimal protection of your IP.

IP law provides a wide range of protection mechanisms to safeguard your intellectual assets:

  • Your content (exts, images, visual art, graphics, layout and design, and software code can be protected by copyright law)
  • You can protect your brand name, product name and logos through trademark law
  • Drawings, models and designs can be protected by design law
  • Inventions can be patented
  • You can also safeguard your trade secrets and know-how
