Practice Areas / Online Counterfeiting & Brand Protection

412.741.8400 | contact@ferencelaw.com

E-commerce platforms have become an ideal storefront for counterfeit products.

They provide a space for online counterfeiters to connect with potential customers at a low cost. Most counterfeiters falsely represent themselves by:

  • Using the brand or product name.
  • Taking photos, videos and/or messaging from the seller’s website.
  • Implementing a bait & switch technique – marketing themselves as an authentic product at a reduced price and then shipping counterfeit products that are poorly manufactured and unsafe.
