Counterfeits are harmful and a risk not worth taking

Customer safety is paramount when it comes to genuine products. For the counterfeiter, regulatory compliance isn’t even a consideration. So online brand protection equals keeping your customers safe.

SnapDragon. In the words of our clients.

Some of the world’s fastest growing brands have already benefited from our approach, and although we guarantee each and every one absolute confidentiality – some have chosen to be vocal about the impact our services have had on their businesses.

Cheeky Chompers

SnapDragon is a great partner for us.  They have successfully, and efficiently, taken down counterfeit sites, enforcing the IP rights in which we have heavily invested at a fraction of the cost of a legal partner.

 

 

Amy Livingstone
(Co-Founder), Cheeky Chompers

The originality and success of Cheeky Chompers award winning bibs led to copycat products in abundance on many platforms. The firm’s registered trade marks and registered design rights have enabled SnapDragon to report for removal infringing links and products on the world’s busiest online marketplaces, keeping the brand unsullied and customers safe.

Hornit

SnapDragon is first class. It was started by someone who made products, got ripped off and they tried to fight back…they now focus entirely on fighting fakes online for other people and have an excellent operation.

 

Tom De Pelet
(Founder), Hornit

The world’s smallest bike rack Clug had unfortunately fallen prey to fakes. Their copyrighted videos and images were also often used to promote spurious copies. With tenacity and persistence, SnapDragon used Hornit’s registered design rights, patent and copyright to remove infringing content on major online marketplaces, as well as independent websites.

Morph Costumes

SnapDragon’s solution is focused, cost-effective and responsive. The continual monitoring process regularly identifies infringing items and by using our registered IP they are able to take action against the links, helping prevent infringing products being sold.

Graeme Menzies
(CFO), AFG Media

Morphcostumes’ brand ‘Morphsuits’ was at risk of becoming a generic trademark. SnapDragon’s unrelenting effort to defend the brand through the use of registered trademarks has helped the Morphsuit maintain its market leading position within the fancy dress industry.
