INTA–BASCAP Workshop: Intermediaries and Rights Holders—Working Together to Stop Counterfeiting and Piracy
The International Trademark Association (INTA) and the International Chamber of Commerce Business Action to Stop Counterfeiting and Piracy (BASCAP) have partnered to create a series of one-day workshops around the world to bring together key stakeholders to find solutions to the growing problem of counterfeiting. The workshop aims to amplify the views of the private sector to governments, public and the media, and to raise awareness and understanding of counterfeiting activities on a local, regional and international level.
The workshop will bring together key stakeholders in different regions like Africa, Latin America and Europe to explore opportunities for rights holders, intermediaries, and governments to work together on solutions. BASCAP will present some of its findings in the recent report entitled "Roles and Responsibilities of Intermediaries: Fighting Counterfeiting and Piracy in the Supply Chain," and INTA will share some of its best practices for addressing the sale of counterfeits through voluntary collaboration. Workshop sessions will focus on several of the key types of intermediary categories, with speakers discussing the challenges and opportunities to cooperate on innovative responses.
