Europol IP Crime Conference and BASCAP paper on Engaging Landlords in the fight against Counterfeiting

IntraOrbis had a productive couple of days at the Europol IP Crime Conference in Antwerp, with interesting discussions and presentations on the challenges we face.  In particular, this BASCAP article gave rise to lively discussions.

BASCAP presented the new paper, Measures to Engage Landlords in the Fight against Counterfeit and Pirated Goods: Best Practices for Landlords, Governments and Enforcement Agencies today at the Europol IP Crime Conference in Antwerp, Belgium.

According to the paper, landlords and property owners control facilities that may be used for production, assembly, storage, distribution or retail sales of counterfeit and pirated goods and other forms of illicit trade. The paper includes recommendations for landlords, governments and law enforcement agencies to remove and prevent counterfeit and pirated goods out of physical marketplaces.
