INTRODUCTION

A considerable amount of creative work goes into producing a new brand. When counterfeiters copy trademarked products, they undermine the creative rights of those involved in producing the originals.

REFLECTIONS

  • Share your brand logos with your class. Try to guess who each design is aimed at.
  • Discuss how you would feel if someone had copied your logo and produced and sold similar, fake products. What problems could this cause and what would you do to respond?
  • What could be the consequences for your business if the fake products were of poor quality or dangerous to health?
