Customs Seizures

If your business hasn’t already been affected by fake goods and counterfeiting, you should consider yourself fortunate. And if it has, you’ll understand the costs associated with every new customs seizure.

As your IP partner, IP custom seizures, copyright and trademark infringement are areas where we offer reassuring help. Here are the rights we may be able to act upon after customs seizures:

 

  • Registered trademarks and trade names.
  • Designs or models.
  • Designations of origin, geographic designations or designation of origin protected rights.
  • Patents and patents for utility models.
  • Supplementary protection certificates.
  • Rights for plant varieties.
  • Semiconductor product topographies.

 

 

 

 

 

Making sense of IP for customs seizures

With 28 member states in the EU (April 2018), shared borders with 20 countries and a boundary approximately 15,000 Km long, making sense of this can seem impossibly challenging.

Don’t worry. That’s what the EU customs authorities are there for. When customs seizures are made, we’re there too, with over 500 IP attorneys and supporting professionals. And over 10,000 combined years’ experience available to tackle counterfeiting and infringements of trademarks on your behalf.

We’re uncompromising practitioners of IP law when tackling IP infringement. This really matters when, according to a 2015 report by www.netnames.com, ‘counterfeiting is as profitable as illegal drugs’. And growing by over 15% per annum as well as costing companies over $1.8 trillion (€1,460,754,000,000) annually.

By the way, our team members are also among the friendliest, most genuine professionals in pan-European IP when looking after you and your IP.

I’ve been very pleased with AIPEX ; the AIPEX team has been able to get some traction on a few cases that I’ve had languishing in the EP. Legal expertise has been very good, technical expertise is good and improving. I’ve been having them prepare more and more substantive responses and fewer ‘receiving agent’ responses where I have US counsel just tell them how to respond. I feel like I’m getting better results having AIPEX handle the case
