IP INFRINGEMENT ON SOCIAL MEDIA
Protecting your revenue, reputation and customers on social media platforms
In recent years, we have seen an explosion of IP infringement on social media platforms. The growth of new shopping features and tools has made it easy for counterfeiters to sell their copycat goods, and brand/employee impersonation has become much more common.
Fortunately, there is a way to combat social media fakery – led by our dragons’ tireless efforts to monitor, detect and enforce brand misuse every day.
WHAT ARE THE MOST PROMINENT SOCIAL MEDIA INFRINGEMENTS?
Fake profiles impersonating a brand, employee or public figure in order to scam unsuspecting consumers, often misusing your intellectual property, or image.
Social media apps often host their own marketplaces or groups where people can buy and sell products. Free to use, and easy to set up, scammers use them to promote and sell fake goods.
With social media’s cheap advertising options, bad actors will often pay for sponsored adverts to promote their fake goods, posing as legitimate brands.
WHY DO YOU NEED TO PROTECT YOUR BRAND FROM FAKES?
We know how much hard work goes into developing your brand and products. Don’t let copycats profit from your ideas and innovation.
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.
Unlike your brand, copycats don’t care about customer safety. Fake goods are typically manufactured cheaply, with the worst offenders using substandard materials and zero safety testing.
