Online marketplaces (OMPs) and social media platforms are hubs for counterfeits. Manual monitoring is unfortunately always inefficient and expensive. With our Software, we help you to gain the necessary transparency about all suspicious online offers worldwide - cost-effectively and consistently. Because our software never sleeps!
The basis for holding imitators accountable is the registration of industrial property rights - preferably worldwide! Because you can only take action against misuse in the countries in which your trademark is registered.
Constant market observation in retail, at trade fairs, and on the internet is essential. Our software automatically scans all relevant offers on the internet 24/7 and reveals potential violations.
Be open about the problem. The fact that they are being imitated also shows that you have a popular, high-quality product! By means of Public Relations, you can inform customers and promote customer loyalty.
The immediate deletion of all illegal offers quickly and effectively prevents further distribution and thus the further spread of these products. In this way, further damage can be efficiently avoided.
"I want companies to stop worrying about brand abuse or product piracy. In a globalized and digitalized economy, this means that we also have to break new ground in combating it."
