    COUNTERFEIT TONERS & INKS SEIZED IN MALAYSIA
    Criminal
    Investigations Department (CID) officials seized a large stock of
    counterfeit HP toners and cartridges from several shops in the Pettah
    vicinity, recently.This action was initiated on a complaint made by
    Sudath Perera Associates on behalf of the Hewlett Packard (HP) Company, a
    globally renowned brand synonymous with computer products and software.
    Some of the counterfeit samples seized in the raid, did not bear the HP
    hologram, a key difference between original and counterfeit products.

    The
    owners of the shops selling counterfeit items were arrested and
    released on bail. The case is currently fixed for December 10, 2011 and
    court has permitted the CID to keep the seized goods in its custody. The
    search warrant was issued by Magistrate Rushmin Singappuli of the
    Magistrate’s Court of Colombo.In the original HP ink cartridge, there is
    a clear and sharp shifting of the hologram from light to dark shade and
    vice versa. In the counterfeit sample, the hologram is of poor quality
    and the difference is distinguishable at a glance. Therefore customers
    should pay extra caution when purchasing these products, if not they
    could be tricked into buying the counterfeit product which would be
    harmful to their computers. Investigations revealed that it is a well
    organized group which sells these counterfeit “HP” ink cartridges and
    toners.The sale of counterfeit goods is an infringement under the
    Intellectual Property Act No 36. of 2003, which, if one is found guilty
    of, carries a fine of up to Rs. 500,000 and a prison sentence of upto a
    maximum of 6 months, or bot
