    Counterfeit products seized in Turkish raid

    Several thousand counterfeit Oki products
    have been seized in a large Istanbul warehouse and assembly plant by Turkish
    police, according to a report on online news service CPI.

    Search and
    seizure orders by the court were made after Oki and other printer manufacturers
    filed a complaint against the undisclosed company in November.

    “Substantial quantities” of products identified as infringing the
    trademarks of other printers were also seized, the report.

    Montgomery, managing director of Oki Europe, said: “Oki has a reputation for the
    vigorous protection of its intellectual property. In recent years, the firm has
    worked with the police in Turkey to stop companies and individuals
    manufacturing, supplying or otherwise dealing in counterfeit Oki products, such
    toner and ribbons.

    “Nine companies
    have been prosecuted to date and we will continue to pursue those involved in
    this illegal activity until it is stamped out,” he added.
