IPR Enforcement and Anti-counterfeiting

Working on different levels to support IPR enforcement is essential to our objective of bringing down the trade with pirated and counterfeit products. The Danish Patent and Trademark Office supports both right holders and consumers in this respect, and we work closely together with other authorities to achieve a safe market for consumers and a good framework for business.

How we help

Through the hotline, you can get information and guidance on how to prevent and combat counterfeiting and on possible lines of action to enforce your rights through civil and criminal enforcement measures. Our guidance covers counterfeiting in relation to trademarks, designs, patents and utility models.


Who we help

We help Danish consumers and businesses, but we can also provide guidance to consumers and businesses located outside of Denmark. As an example, SMEs located outside Denmark, who own EU trademarks or EU designs, can seek guidance from the hotline in relation to counterfeiting in Denmark.

Our network

The employees handling the hotline have a close working relationship with other public sector authorities working with IPR enforcement and anti-counterfeiting. The hotline is therefore able to refer customers directly to relevant colleagues in these authorities for further information in relation to their respective areas of expertise.
