Guangdong: 37 businesses in Dongguan make "No Fakes" pledge


Nobody would like to spend on fake goods. From now on, consumers can note whether there is a "No Fakes" commitment sign hung in shop, which is a new way to identify genuineness.

On December 19, Dongguan Municipal Intellectual Property Office, Copyright Bureau and Industrial and Commercial Administration jointly held a plaque-awarding ceremony of "2011 Gongguan 'No Fakes' Pledge" at Tianhong Market. 37 businesses voluntarily made a public pledge of "No Fakes" to prevent the circulation of fake goods and protect intellectual property.

The three departments offered on-the-spot consulting services, and experts provided solutions on patent, copyright and trademarks issues. Meanwhile, 800 copies of promotional material, 5,000 "No Fakes" labels, 2,000 reusable bags and 300 mousepad are distributed to the public.
