Workshop on Dealing with Professional Anti-Counterfeiters (Chinese Session)
AmCham Shanghai invites you to a briefing session on "How to Deal with Anti-Counterfeiters" on February 24, from 14:00 - 16:00 at the AmCham Shanghai Office.
Professional "anti-counterfeiters" refer to everyday citizens who were fighting against the distribution of counterfeited goods both online and offline. These "anti-counterfeiters" were initially viewed as a supplement to market regulators as they were able to increase the number of people fighting against the counterfeit trade in China. These teams of people, who had volunteered, were paid a "reward" each time they flagged a business or website for selling counterfeit goods. However, many of these "anti-counterfeiters" are now taking advantage of the system and using it to make money, often through doing the counterfeiting themselves. These malicious anti-counterfeit initiatives not only have been a big disturbance to companies, especially those in the retail sector, but also have consumed a lot of regulatory resources. Chen Jiyang, a Chinese lawyer who worked in the Administration of Industrial and Commerce in Shanghai for years, will share some of his experiences, case studies, and provide best practices for dealing with these "anti-counterfeit" professionals.
Please note that this briefing session is in Chinese and no translation will be provided.
This event is off-the-record and seats are limited, so please RSVP in advance. Contact email@example.com if you have questions.
