Shopee (Taiwan) met with ACG members today for a roundtable discussion about their new monitoring and take down ecosystem.
ACG members met Operational Associates from Shopee, to discuss their anti-counterfeiting efforts to protect Intellectual Property Right (IPR) infringements in the Taiwan and Southeast Asian Market.
Founded in 2009, Shopee is the biggest mobile ecommerce selling platform, with over 3 million active daily users. Shopee (Taiwan) believe counterfeits have a damaging impact on brand reputation and consumers and will be addressing this is a priority.
ACG members attending the roundtable were offered an in-depth presentation on the new anti-counterfeiting project, which will focus on building an intelligence-sharing system for brand owners and police enforcement, in both an online and offline capacity. Shopee’s project will aim to remove any counterfeit that constitutes a trademark infringement.
ACG Protecting Brands Online Roundtables offer members an opportunity to directly ask (or use ACG as a vehicle to ask) questions or concerns about the platform. On this occasion, some brands’ questions were shared with Shopee ahead of the roundtable and the team responded during their presentation.
