    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
