Copyright Promotions Group Limited recently moved to protect some of its clients' properties, helping Trading Standards to seize a number of counterfeit goods.

CPLG worked with Trading Standards, the Metropolitan Police and Immigration officials to target a hotspot in the borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, apparently renowned for illegal trading of counterfeit IP.

Further to initial observations, plain clothed officers seized a significant quantity of counterfeit goods, in particular those carrying the likenesses of Scarface, Pink Panther and Bruce - all CPLG properties.

Tim Juckes, category director at CPLG, said that the active measure "is part of CPLG's strategy to safe-guard the integrity of our clients' properties and to preserve the quality and safety of branded products".

Juckes is hopeful that CPLG's efforts will enable effective prevention of counterfeiting.

"It has never been more important to protect intellectual property through active measures, not just for the sake of our clients, but also to prevent the funding of serious crime worldwide."
