Rights holders in the UK must remain vigilant to prevent the import and sale of counterfeited goods which will damage their sales, revenue and, most likely, quality reputation.  In order to prevent the import of counterfeit goods, it is important for rights holders to work directly with HMRC (which will intercept goods that it believes are infringing). 

Jeremy Dickerson, Emily Roberts and Georgina Shaw from our Intellectual Property team give practical guidance and advice in World Trademark Review to rights owners managing this relationship and subsequent legal action to protect their products. This article first appeared in Anti-counterfeiting 2013 – A Global Guide, a supplement to World Trademark Review, published by The IP Media Group.
