IACC partners up with City of London Police
The International AntiCounterfeiting Coalition (IACC) has agreed a new memorandum of understanding with the City of London Police.

The memorandum, signed at the 10th Annual Intellectual Property Crime Conference in London last week, strengthens the bonds between the two and shows solidarity in fighting for intellectual property rights.

The deal is similar to the one established with the Guardia di Finanzia (GdF), in that it will strengthen existing collaborations on anti-counterfeiting initiatives and programmes.

These agreements will allow the organisations to share the best practices on brand protection and bolster anti-counterfeiting operations.

IACC president, Bob Barchiesi said: “Partnerships like these are an important step in winning the battle against counterfeiting.”

“We commend the City of London Police for its dedication to intellectual property protection, and we look forward to working hand-in-hand with law enforcement to stop fakes from making their way to London and beyond.”
