Monitor

It starts with knowing what's out there. Online marketplaces, social media, apps, websites, and the dark web are conduits for the sale of counterfeit and infringing products. Gain intelligence on which unauthorized products are hitting the market and where they're being sold, then begin to take action.

3
Investigate

When you find unauthorized product listings it's time to ID the seller and gather evidence. Test purchases serve to collect information on the seller identity and secure physical and/or digital proof of the infringement for litigation.

Analyze

It takes a trained professional to know what to look for. Counterfeits are made to look like the real deal and can fool just about anybody. Collected evidence is studied and scrutinized based on your brand's security measures to positively confirm whether a product is genuine, counterfeit, or otherwise infringing.

5
Enforce / Disrupt

It's time to enforce your intellectual property rights. Take down infringing listings to disrupt the online marketplace, making it harder for illegitimate sellers to make a sale. Send cease-and-desist letters to positively-identified sellers and prepare for litigation against recidivist sellers using substantiated findings and chain-of-custody documentation.
