    300,000 HP CARTRIDGES SEIZED IN MAJOR COUNTERFEIT RAID
    Saudi Arabian authorities execute major seizure of counterfeit printing supplies
    HP Saudi Arabia today announced that its collaboration with the Saudi Arabian Ministry of Commerce and local police has produced the largest local seizure of HP-targeted counterfeit printing supplies within the last year. In recent coordinated strikes against manufacturing sites, warehouses and retail outlets belonging to nine individual companies, authorities arrested several people and confiscated more than 300,000 illicit print cartridges and components for HP printers.Law-enforcement officials required nearly two dozen large trucks to haul away huge quantities of ready-for-sale laser and inkjet printing cartridge counterfeits as well as equipment and materials for assembling and packaging the fake products.

    Within the last year, Saudi authorities have seized more than 800,000 illegal print cartridges and components for HP printing systems, and more than 3,000,000 since late 2006.”There are criminal counterfeiting elements that are trying to establish and spread their illegal activity in the Kingdom and the Middle Eastern region, but HP and Saudi authorities are achieving important victories,” said Laszlo Czinege, general manager, Imaging and Printing Group, HP Saudi Arabia. “HP is committed to protecting its customers and ensuring they receive the quality experience they’re expecting. For many young first time users who are deceived by counterfeits, this will limit their eagerness to engage with technology, and this has a significant negative impact on the social and economic development of the Kingdom.”Through its Anti-counterfeiting Programme, HP actively educates its customers and partners to be vigilant against fake printing supplies. It also cooperates closely with local and global law enforcement to dismantle illegal operations that manufacture counterfeit printing supplies for HP printers.

    In the region covering Europe, the Middle East, the Mediterranean and Africa, from the end of 2008 through August 2010, HP has helped authorities seize around 4.9 million finished counterfeits and components. In 2009 alone, the number of pieces of counterfeits seized represented more than double the value of items confiscated in the previous year.Globally, over the last four years, HP conducted 4,723 investigations in 88 countries resulting in 3,733 enforcement actions (raids and seizures by authorities) confiscating over 47.23 million units of counterfeit products and components. Investigations and actions have occurred on every continent except Antarctica
