Anti-counterfeiting and Anti-piracy

    November 2013
    Squire Sanders, in partnership with LexisNexis, has prepared a practice note discussing anti-counterfeiting and anti-piracy. This note provides guidance on the issues to consider and steps to take when tasked with tackling identified instances of counterfeiting and piracy. The article differentiates between targets who know what they are doing is unlawful, but are determined to continue doing it anyway and otherwise legitimate competitors who have over-borrowed elements of branding and/or copyright works for their own products and strayed into infringement territory.
