ENFORCING YOUR IP ON INDEPENDENT WEBSITES
SnapDragon detect and enforce on websites that spoof your brand and defraud your customers
Is your brand being faked online? From replica websites posing as your brand to dodgy third-party suppliers, infringing websites can seriously harm your reputation – while diverting traffic from your official site. Snapdragon detects and takes down illicit websites for you, so you can focus on the task of growing your business. Find out how we do it.
WHAT DO THESE WEBSITES LOOK LIKE?
Depending on the product and intent, fake websites can assume a few different forms. Here are the most common types we regularly identify:
Scammers will create a convincing copy of your website, stealing your brand name, trademarks and copyright to pose as your brand.
Some fake sites will sell counterfeit goods, but many are simply looking to extract data and steal from unsuspecting consumers, often often offering no real inventory.
Offering illicit goods, multi-brand websites will infringe multiple brands including your own – posing as independent online shops.
HOW CAN THEY HARM YOUR BRAND?
These illegitimate sites can divert search traffic away from your business
Fake websites lure customers away, using your intellectual property and tantalising prices
Unwitting customers receiving poor quality products, or scammed of their hard-earned money, may complain to (or about) you – harming your business and reputation
Your customers can be robbed of their money, while others may receive dubious goods manufactured cheaply and dangerously
Trusted by brands to protect their website.
For our clients, we find and takedown fake domains to protect your revenue, reputation and customers from harm.
So how do we do it?
We search for websites spoofing your brand on search engines, domain databases and social media.
REPORT AND ENFORCE
Using your intellectual property, we report fake sites to the website owner, host and / or registrar to have them removed.
We identify the seller’s identity, look for trends, and target repeat offenders to keep fake websites down for good. We will also provide you with relevant information for any offline action.

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.
