Training for detecting counterfeit products


Lilie Delion

Two years ago, Estudio Delion had a meeting in the US with the lawyer for one of the world’s leading bearings manufacturers.

With substantial experience of cases in the American market, he was keen to send people from the company to teach Peruvian customs employees the difference between an original product and a counterfeit by looking at codes, packing and other technical specifications.

On June 12, 2012, the company carried out this training in collaboration with Estudio Delion.

By way of legal background, the Free Trade Agreement signed with the US and the creation for its implementation of Legislative Decree No. 1075, brought several innovations to the field of IP. It prescribed that all infringement actions concerning trademark rights must be resolved in a maximum of 180 working days, and more severe potential penalties for infringement were imposed, of up to $200,000.
