Online Brand Protection for Luxury & Fashion
Watches and Accessories
Watches are among the most widely counterfeited luxury goods in the world. According to the Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), Switzerland alone loses $2 billion in annual revenue to the sale of counterfeit Swiss watches. While China serves as the top source country for the production of counterfeit watches, consignment stores all over the world carry counterfeit watches, with only a small fraction being seized by customs and law enforcement.
The difficulty in controlling physical shipments of counterfeit watches makes online investigations and takedowns critically important, as shipments are often carried out in response to orders placed online. In recent years, the problem has increased due to the prominence of social media influencers who encourage their followers to purchase counterfeit watches and accessories.
Authentix Online Brand Protection for luxury and fashion monitors major global marketplaces and social media platforms for counterfeit watches and targets counterfeiters through both online product takedowns and physical investigations. We represent several of the world’s major luxury watch, jewelry, sunglasses, handbag, and wallet manufacturers and are well versed in the specific challenges of online brand protection for the luxury fashion industry.
Apparel and Footwear
Counterfeit footwear and apparel make up a major share of the global counterfeit trade, with some estimates projecting that up to 10 percent of all branded goods may be counterfeit. There is a wide range of types of counterfeit apparel that may be posing a problem for your brand, from the use of labels in violation of trademark law, to the use of popular characters from films and television shows in violation of copyright law, to the reproduction of signature logos and patterns in violation of industrial design law.
