Fight against counterfeiting and piracy

Counterfeit goods and intellectual property piracy are one of the biggest threats to the economy and the legal system. They not only undermine trust in brands and manufacturers, but also bring significant losses to both legal owners and society as a whole. In this regard, the fight against counterfeiting and piracy becomes an extremely important task for companies that have encountered such a violation of their legal rights.


Legal regulation in the field of counterfeiting and piracy varies from country to country, but is mainly based on international agreements and national legislation. For example, the famous Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) sets standards for the protection of intellectual property rights and prohibits trade in counterfeit goods. Most countries, including Ukraine, also have their own national laws that prohibit the production, distribution and sale of counterfeit goods.

There are several ways to detect the presence and distribution of counterfeit goods, depending on the type of product and the field of business. Here are some general tips:

  • Conducting an audit

Periodic audits of your own products or products that represent the interests of your brand can reveal counterfeits. During the audit, you should pay attention to signs of counterfeiting, such as incorrect labeling, low quality products, etc.

  • Monitoring on the Internet

Counterfeit goods are often sold through online marketplaces. Use specialized programs or monitoring services to search for counterfeit offers on the web.

  • Creation of a tracking system

The use of technologies such as RFID tags or QR codes allows you to track the legal path of the product from the producer to the consumer. This helps to detect cases of counterfeiting and to intervene in time.

  • Cooperation with customs services

Customs can be a key body in preventing the importation of counterfeit products from abroad and vice versa. Cooperation with customs authorities and entering data into the customs register plays an important role in effectively controlling the circulation of counterfeit goods at the border.


Detecting counterfeiting is only the first step in combating this problem. Once counterfeit products are detected, it is important to take appropriate measures, including legal action, to stop their distribution and protect your business rights.

Legal firms play a key role in the fight against counterfeiting and piracy. They provide advice to clients on the protection of intellectual property rights, develop legal defense strategies, represent their interests in court and assist in the execution of court decisions.

The fight against counterfeiting and piracy is a complex process that requires a comprehensive approach from government bodies and businesses.
