Counterfeit Seizure

By Anonymous writer - Glossary

A counterfeit seizure is a procedure which is used to prove that allegedly counterfeit goods are in fact counterfeit. It allows the owner of the intellectual property whose rights have been violated as a result of the counterfeit to ask the President of the Court of Grand Instance where the counterfeit is alleged to have taken place to order its seizure.

This seizure can take place in one of two ways:

  • The physical seizure of the counterfeit object;
  • The descriptive seizure which involves a description of the object.
