Survey on product piracy launched

There is always more news on counterfeit products from Asia. The figures at the disposal of European Customs agency show China to be the country of origin for product piracy (we already reported on this). Against this background the Association of German chambers of commerce and industry (DIHK) in co-operation with an initiative against product and brand piracy called APM start a survey among companies.

The objective is to determine more precisely than ever before to which extent the economy is affected by counterfeist from China and what the causes are. For this reason DIHK and APM call upon all companies to take part in the survey and to share their experiences with counterfeit products from China by logging on to a website especially created to this end.

Furthermore there is the possibility to signal concrete cases of piracy and give additional information on the APM website. GERMAN
