Intellectual Property Litigation and Anti-Counterfeiting Procedures
Intellectual property rights grant their owners an exclusive use right and allow them to prohibit any non-authorized use by thirdparties. This right, without the possibility of enforcing it, is useless and incomplete. Therefore, it is necessary to consider tools to enforce the intellectual property rights. One of these tools is the adequate legal advice, since this is the main medium to enforce such rights.
All over the world the counterfeiting is exponentially increasing through the years, affecting directly the economy and the business. Trademark falsification generates important economic losses to trademark owners because counterfeiters use the prestige of certain trademarks in order to obtain illegal benefits. Moreover, counterfeiting affects the society as a whole, because consumers are deceived when they buy a product that they think is original, but is in fact counterfeited.
