As part of their Counter-Infringement Strategy, launched last year, the Intellectual Property Office (IPO) has launched new dedicated counter-infringement social channels on Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram – with the handle IPO Counter-Infringement (@IPOEnforcment).
The IPO’s Enforcement team has been stepping up action in the fight against IP crime and the new channels will act as a platform to share successes with stakeholders, including counter-infringement partnership work and educational campaigns.
The Intellectual Property Office’s Head of Outreach Campaigns Miles Rees said:
“The UK is widely regarded as a global leader in the enforcement of IP rights and tackling IP crime. We want to keep it that way, and effective partnerships across industry, law enforcement and government are at the core of our ambitious counter-infringement strategy.
We are delighted to launch our new dedicated enforcement channels on social media. Complementing our main corporate Intellectual Property Office accounts, they will act as a platform to share successes – including our counter-infringement partnership work and the IPO’s educational campaigns – with all those allied in the fight against IP crime.
Together, we are working toward the long-term goal of making IP crime socially unacceptable to all, so it’s vital to raise awareness of the real harms this type of crime causes, as we support our law enforcement partners to help tackle criminal activity head-on. The new social media accounts will help us spread our crucial message far-and-wide, and are a great way to make sure you get all the latest updates on the IPO’s work to address IP crime and infringement”.
