Messe Frankfurt against Copying

Protection against brand and product piracy

Schutz vor Markenpiraterie und Produktpiraterie

In 2006, Messe Frankfurt became the first trade fair organiser worldwide to launch an initiative against brand and product piracy: “Messe Frankfurt against Copying”. This initiative aims to ensure that exhibitors and visitors are fully informed and advised about the registration and assertion of intellectual property rights. That is why it offers an information stand at selected trade fairs within Germany and abroad. Here, experts are on hand to answer questions pertaining to the topic of intellectual property rights and advise exhibitors on what to do in the event of infringements.

Messe Frankfurt works in close cooperation with official bodies and private organisations in the field of protection of intellectual property rights for all activities associated with its initiative. Thus, exhibitors and visitors are able to find out at first hand how they can register and assert their intellectual property rights.
In urgent cases, Messe Frankfurt arranges for legal support, and an on-site emergency legal service offers exhibitors free initial advice during the fairs.
