It’s World Intellectual Property Day and ACG celebrated by raising awareness of the dangers of counterfeits at an exhibition alongside Heathrow Border Force, at the Home Office in London.
"Counterfeiters have little interest in safety and are only concerned in producing high volume, substandard goods, to be sold at the best possible price. No single agency can beat this menacing and growing crime on their own. Public and private sector bodies must collaborate and share information and intelligence commented Phil Lewis, ACG Director General.
Home Office staff visited the exhibition throuhgout the day and examined the real and fake goods. Among the visitors were; Paul Lincoln Director General, Border Force and Emma Moore, Border Force Chief Operating Officer.
ACG represents more than 3,000 brands affected by this influx of fakes into the UK and delivers an international network of information, advice and contacts on all aspects of IP protection. Working with Government and law enforcement agencies since 1980, ACG is focused on providing an effective and sustained response to counterfeiting.
