IP2 Manila Associates is the exclusive investigators for two of worldâ€™s biggest desktop printing companies. We run a program in collaboration with the clientsâ€™ legal counsels focusing on eliminating counterfeit printing consumables in the country.Â The work requires proficiency of the industry and product familiarization trainings is a routine.
As part of the anti-counterfeiting strategy, IP2 Manila Associates is keeping a telephone hotline so reports may be collected from consumers, and acted on immediately.Â On a monthly basis, market surveys are also conducted in selected parts of the country, to obtain accurate data as to the level of counterfeit circulation, and to locate individual sources of supplies. Since 2003, our efforts have resulted to raids against 31 large manufacturers and importers. A raid action carried out recently led to the identification of a large factory in China and the Southeast Asian connections.
