REFLECTIONS

  • Choose three statements from the interviews that you think are the strongest reasons for respecting trademarks.
  • Using these reasons as a starting point, create a range of content to post on social media sites, including a blog aimed at young people of your age to raise awareness about the importance of respecting trademark law. This content should include:
    • a bespoke hashtag;
    • punchy information about why it’s important to respect trademarks;
    • the dangers of purchasing counterfeit goods and services;
    • quotes from people whose businesses have suffered from counterfeiting;
    • links to online sources where people can find out more about the dangers of counterfeits.
