    HP JOINS NEW
    COUNTERFEIT ALLIANCE

    HP has joined forces with
    global leadership group, Business Action to Stop Counterfeiting and
    Piracy (BASCAP).HP, in support of BASCAP, has outlined plans to mobilise
    businesses across sectors, and says it will invest in resources and
    expertise to curb counterfeiting.
    Jeff Hardy, BASCAP coordinator of
    the International Chamber of Commerce, says: “The International Chamber
    of Commerce is extremely pleased to have HP join the BASCAP initiative,
    especially as counterfeit consumer electronics continue  to be a
    significant international problem.”Hardy adds that the partnership with
    HP is expected to generate greater awareness around the threat that
    counterfeiting causes. He notes that the alliance will amplify BASCAP’s
    message with policy makers and consumers.

    Global challenge
    Stephen
    Nigro, senior vice-president of HP Imaging and Printing Group’s inkjet
    and Web solutions business, says HP has been investing in
    anti-counterfeiting practices for nearly a decade.“The manufacturing and
    illicit sale of counterfeit products is a global problem that spans
    across many industries and shows no signs of slowing down, especially
    during tough economic times,” notes Nigro“We are eager to exchange
    ideas, key learnings and best practices with other BASCAP members in an
    effort to strengthen global anti-counterfeiting efforts.”

    Formed
    by the International Chamber of Commerce, BASCAP unites the global
    business community to identify and address intellectual property rights
    issues and petition for greater commitments by local, national and
    international officials in the enforcement and protection of these
    rights.The Global Leadership Group was created in 2005 as a forum for
    BASCAP member CEOs and other top executives to exchange views and
    priorities. BASCAP also provides a platform for the organisation to
    speak directly with government ministers and international media.
