Fighting Online-Piracy

Effectively fight product piracy on the internet

The sale of counterfeit products on the internet can infringe trademark and design rights. This means that it is all the more important that you protect your trademark and defend your designs. We can support you by ensuring that all infringing online offers are regularly removed by the operators of the online marketplaces or through the initiation of border seizure proceedings.

What can we do for you? We advise you in the following areas:

  • Monitoring online marketplaces to identify infringements of trademark rights
  • Setting up accounts for proprietors of intellectual property rights in online marketplaces
  • Contesting online offers that infringe trademark rights (“take-down notices”)
  • Conducting cancellation proceedings in the case of objection by the provider
  • Test purchases to analyse the counterfeits and identify the provider
  • Initiation of legal, police- and customs-related measures in Germany and abroad with the support of our partner law firms
