Our founders wife recently bought a "designer label" jacket for
their son as a Christmas present from what appeared to be a
legitimate online shop. When their son tried to wear the
Designer Jacket on Christmas day; he discovered that the zip was
broken. Believing the jacket to be genuine, they contacted the
seller. The seller refused to help (despite the fact that he was
legally obliged to do so).
Our founder contacted the legitimate manufacturer (Ed Hardy
Clothing) in the USA and was told that the jacket was
counterfeit (fake Ed Hardy Jacket). He therefore took legal
action and successfully prosecuted the seller.
This experience is one of the reasons that we set up UK Anti
Piracy. Put simply; there is obviously a very real need for this service.
We now work with many major manufacturers, copyright license
holders and government departments (such as Trading Standards)
in the battle against counterfeit clothing, fashion piracy and
fake designer clothing.
