The Anti-Counterfeiting Group (ACG) travelled to Wembley yesterday to host its fourth Intellectual Property (IP) Roadshow of the year
ACG members from more than 40 brands and Border Force officers from London Heathrow, talked to delegates from the police, HM Revenue and Customs and Trading Standards as they visited their exhibits to learn about how to identify a genuine and a counterfeit product.
Enforcement delegates witnessed presentations from ACG about its lobbying and enforcement activities, received an IP legal update from the Chartered Trading Standards Institute and heard from brands including Yankee Candle, New Era Caps and Rubie’s Masquerade Co. Ltd
Later in the afternoon Graham Mogg, ACG Intelligence Coordinator and David Hunt, Camden Trading Standards shared some of their latest innovative enforcement initiatives.
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.
Membership with the ACG is the best way to work with government and enforcement bodies to protect your brand. Our Roadshows and training days help you reach out to police, trading standards and border force officers and tell them about your genuine products.
