Not only does it infringe on Intellectual Property Rights, these goods also pose direct threat to consumer health and safety. They promote unfair competition and revenue losses for National Governments in terms of reduced taxes and the business community holding IPR.
In order to build a strong IP ecosystem in the states of India, CII every year organizes Orientation / Interactive sessions with Custom / Police official on "Intellectual Property Rights with special focus on Counterfeiting & Piracy - Enforcement Issues".
