    Fake Canon Goods Worth Rs 10 Lakh Seized in Mumbai
    Mumbai, Nov 2005
    In
    a late-night raid recently on a manufacturing unit at MRA Marg, Mumbai
    police seized more than 300 pieces of duplicate Canon cartridges and
    toners worth about Rs 10 lakh. The seized cartridges were manufactured
    using fake packing materials, holograms and price stickers.
    The police arrested the owner of the unit and registered a case under sections 51 and 63 of the Copyright Act.
    The
    raid was led by EIPR (Enforcers of Intellectual Property Rights), an
    ISO-certified company founded by a former top police official and
    Zaheer Khan. R. B. Chavan (GM-operations, West Region) and B. G.
    Gaikwad represented EIPR on behalf of Canon Inc.
    Confirming the
    raid, Mahesh Bhimrao Bansode, investigating officer, EIPR, said, “Our
    investigations revealed the prevalence of such activity that is
    detrimental to the business interest of our client, Canon Inc. We
    registered an FIR with MRA Marg police station and a team led by
    sub-inspector Kamble conducted the raid on the unit. The team
    confiscated a huge quantity of Canon cartridges and toners worth more
    than Rs 5 lakh.”
    Citing this as a clear case of violation of section
    51/63 of the Copyright Act 1957, Bansode said, “The unit in question
    has been using packing material which has a different printing and
    color combination, fake hologram and price stickers to mislead people.
    As we had information on the activities of this firm, we had kept a
    watch on its movements for some time before approaching the police and
    lodging an FIR.”
    According to EIPR, every year business worth crores
    is conducted on just spurious goods. To curb this trend, it has asked
    people to be vigilant and alert and inform the concerned authorities.
