    Fake printer cartridges seized at
    Andheri
     






    These counterfeit Canon
    print cartridges are filled with dirty toxic
    ink

    On May 9, Canon employees along with members
    from Enforcers of Intellectual Property Rights (EIPR) and the crime branch
    conducted a citywide raid to nab makers of counterfeit Canon cartridges. They
    seized fake printer cartridges worth Rs 12 lakh from a manufacturing unit at
    Veera Desai Road.

    Speaking about the raids, Zahir Khan, managing director
    of EIPR, says, “Canon Inc appointed our investigating and enforcement firm to
    deal with the problem.

    We had been planning a raid against counterfeit
    Canon cartridge makers in the city for a month now. We targetted both retailers
    and manufacturers. We confiscated goods worth Rs 25 lakh in the citywide raids.”

    Adds Khan, “With the advent of technology, counterfeiters are now
    capable of duplicating even the minutest details — such as barcodes, holograms,
    security tags and packaging.”

    He explains that people using these
    cartridges were bound to face problems. “The counterfeiters were using crude
    methods to refill very dirty and toxic ink in the cartridges,” reveals
    Khan.

    The culprits were arrested under Section 51 / 63 of the Copyrights
    Act 1957, Sections 103/104 of the Trademark Act 1999 and Section 420 of the
    Indian Penal Code (cheating).
