WIPR talks to Lacoste's vice president of global public and legal affairs.
What is your role at the company? What do you do?
I am vice president, public and legal affairs, global, at Lacoste S.A, and a member of the Executive Committee. As such, I co-ordinate intellectual property, public and legal matters worldwide, especially in relation to all our licensees. This includes responsibility for the selective distribution set up since the beginning of the company in 1933.
How big a problem is online selling of counterfeit Lacoste products?
