Brand protection priorities with regards to a particular product or country can be uncertain at the early stages of a program. The first objective may be to ascertain whether there is a significant issue at all.
In other cases, brand owners may be aware of issues offline but are unsure of whether these are evident to any degree on the Internet.
As such, we have been asked to carry out a wide range of ad-hoc projects that range from initial scoping to in-depth audits.
Typically these projects use one or more of our specialist language skills to research specific issues in certain countries.
We have conducted research projects and audits involving trademark abuse, design rights infringements, distributors of counterfeit products and manufacturers of counterfeit packaging and products.
