According to Hatem Abdelghani, Director of Intellectual Property Department at Legal Group, cosmetics and body care products are on the top list of counterfeit items seized in the UAE. They usually fake products like cosmetics, shampoo, toothpaste,… since these products are fast-selling in a large number according to Abdelghani on the sidelines of Intellectual Property Training organized to teach government employees to spot fake items. Dubai Economic Development Department (DED), Dubai Customs and Dubai Police participated in the training.
The problem with fake products has become more serious since now the traders have very “smart” strategy to deliver counterfeits all over the country. For example, they mix the original with the fakes, usually reduce the value of the product by 50 to 60 per cent.
In this year, over 26 million fake products, worth Dh1.19 billion were demolished in Dubai in March. And in June, the government have seized thousands of counterfeit watches, mobile phones and accessories, valued at Dh33 million.
All these thing damage the economy of the UAE.
