All-day anticounterfeiting program at INTA Annual Meeting

At this year’s Annual Meeting, INTA is launching its first-ever all-day anticounterfeiting program—the “Anticounterfeiting Solutions for Brand Owners Workshop.” The program is solely for in-house practitioners and was so popular that INTA increased the capacity to 150 from the original 120. It takes place today from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm.

Maysa Razavi, INTA’s anticounterfeiting manager, says INTA is uniquely positioned to contribute to the anticounterfeiting debate.

“What we really bring to the table is the global best practices,” she told the INTA Daily News. “We can see what’s working in Europe and the U.S. and elsewhere and we can share that with the different countries and tell them what we think would work there. INTA is building a network worldwide of government officials, of our members and all the people in the anticounterfeiting world and trying to share ­information, work together and raise awareness among the public.”

Today’s workshop is the latest of several anticounterfeiting events INTA has been involved with. Recent months have seen workshops in India and Mexico and INTA is coordinating with BASCAP in running a series of workshops on the roles and responsibilities of intermediaries in ­enforcing IP rights.
