In 2006, Messe Frankfurt became the first trade fair organiser worldwide to launch an initiative against brand and product piracy: “Messe Frankfurt against Copying”. This initiative aims to ensure that exhibitors and visitors are fully informed about the registration and assertion of intellectual property rights.
During the trade fair we will be happy to assist you with all questions pertaining to protection against brand and product piracy at our information stand.
You will find the “Messe Frankfurt against Copying Stand” in Foyer North Hall 11.Via.
Messe Frankfurt works in close cooperation with official bodies and private organisations in the field of protection of intellectual property rights for all activities associated with its initiative. Thanks to our partners’ experts, exhibitors and visitors are able to find out at first hand how they can register and assert their intellectual property rights.
In urgent cases, Messe Frankfurt arranges for legal support, and an on-site emergency legal service offers exhibitors free initial advice during the fairs.
The success of “Messe Frankfurt against Copying” has been striking: more than 22,000 customers have benefited from the information on offer since the initiative was launched. The number of products seized by customs has fallen significantly – by as much as 95 percent at individual fairs.
You will find a compact overview of everything you need to know in our brochure “Protection against brand and product piracy”.
