There’s some very welcome news for European businesses in Vietnam: Customs have announced that they are ramping up their inspection efforts to tackle counterfeit goods in the country. How does this affect you? If you have any intellectual property recorded in Vietnam, Customs are asking for your recordal information so they can better identify genuine and fake products. This can help stop knock-offs of your goods from both entering Vietnam and leaving the country for other markets such as those in Europe. We recommend you record your IP with Customs and now seems like a very good time to do it! For more on this news, see IP Komodo’s post here.
