Featured newsCommercial Crime Court in Johannesburg imposes heavy sentence on counterfeiter
There has been an increase in the number of decisions emanating from our courts confirming the view that counterfeiting is a serious offence and that appropriate sentences will be implemented as a deterrent and punishment to people who deal in counterfeit goods.
A factory was recently discovered in Rosettenville, Johannesburg, manufacturing counterfeit caps. Thousands of caps and hundreds of tags and labels bearing the LACOSTE trade marks were seized. In addition, a large industrial embroidery machine that was being used to apply the infringing tags and labels to the caps was also seized.
