We protect your brand on the world’s most popular app stores and websites

PROTECT YOUR BRAND ON APP STORES

App stores are not immune to fakes

Living in an increasingly digital and mobile world means more and more people use their devices to browse and shop online. However, brands who have developed their own mobile app are very much at risk of intellectual property infringements. Fake apps appear on many of the most popular app stores, and your official app could be unknowingly distributed on application websites packed with malware. Often, your registered trademark such as your brand name or logo will be used to promote the app, or your copyrighted materials will be stolen to imitate your brand. This puts your customers at risk of fraudulent activity, such as paying for a copycat app, purchasing counterfeit goods, or providing their details to an illicit third party. We can help safeguard your brand and your customers.

HOW DO WE FIND MOBILE APP INFRINGEMENTS?

{{$text}
Targeted detection

We search the world’s most popular app stores (including Apple, Google Play, Chrome, Amazon, Samsung and Microsoft) to find infringements of your intellectual property.

 

 

{{$text}
Quick enforcement

Once detected, we enforce your intellectual property rights to have the infringing materials removed. We can pre-agree certain criteria for automatic enforcement for even quicker takedowns.

Insightful Web portal

Our Swoop portal is accessible via all major web browsers and offers access to all the results we capture. Where content is ambiguous in its infringement, we can flag these results via the portal and allow our clients to make a final decision.

WHY DO YOU NEED TO PROTECT YOUR BRAND FROM FAKES?

{{$text}
Revenue Diversion

We know how much hard work goes into developing your brand and products. Don’t let copycats profit from your ideas and innovation.

{{$text}
Reputational Damage

Often, customers buy copies and counterfeits thinking they are the real thing. Knock-off products harm the name and reputation you have worked so hard to build.

{{$text}
Relationship Decay

Leaving unauthorised sellers, counterfeiters and copycats unchecked can damage the invaluable network you have cultivated, with revenues and standards diverted.

{{$text}
Customer Safety

Unlike your brand, copycats don’t care about your customer safety. Fake goods are typically manufactured cheaply, using substandard materials and zero safety testing.

SnapDragon is first class. It was started by someone who made products, got ripped off and tried to fight back. Now they focus entirely on fighting fakes for other people. They take all the hassle away and have software making it a 1000 times more painless than doing it yourself.
