One important success was achieved during the most important European trade fair for Neutrik, the Prolight + Sound in Frankfurt/Main, at the end of March 2012. Based on an injunction issued due to trademark infringement rights and illegal use of protected product design features, all relevant products, catalogs and brochures were confiscated directly at the booth of the copier and a substantial fine was imposed. Such activities also showed impact on other exhibitors and may encourage them to continue the fight against piracy of products.
Another success in defending Neutrik's trademarks took place in Shenzhen / China in June 2012. Together with the local authorities, it was possible to catch a company red-handed when manufacturing a large number of Neutrik product copies. In addition more than 10,000 copied products as well as tools and packaging material were confiscated, criminal proceedings against the company and its managers were instituted, too.
