Brand Protection Service Wing

It is important to protect your products from people copying them without your permission (counterfeiting) and branding them like your products (Lookalike/Copycat). In both cases the impact of such counterfeit and lookalike activities is that, it directly affects the profits of company as consumers buy counterfeited products instead of genuine product. Therefore, Company reputation gets down, as counterfeited products are of inferior qualities. Brand protection involves preventing unauthorized use of the brand and preventing any activity which could harm the brand’s reputation. In the recent world, Brands are generally recognized as a key asset for creating value for a business and is the central nexus of communication between an enterprise and its consumers.
 
In the context of Bangladesh, Brand protection is a very challenging work. So many companies whether with legal entity or not, are easily producing counterfeited or copycat products with an aim to pass off the IP rights of established or popular brands. Such a company always has an intention to distribute their goods by using the ‘Goodwill’ of famous brands. Country like Bangladesh, where millions of consumers are illiterate and unaware of origin of products, it is very easy to market counterfeit and lookalike/copycat consumer Products whether it is cosmetics, foods or any other consumer Products.
