Winning the fight against fakes through collaboration - featuring Wish.com (on demand)

How brands and marketplaces can team up in the post-COVID-19 era to mitigate the rise of IP infringements

Find out everything you should know about combating brand abuse and online counterfeiting by partnering with e-commerce platforms

COVID-19 has changed e-commerce forever. Since the start of the pandemic, research suggests that online sales have increased by 40%. This has also led to an increase in brand abuse, with $1 in $5 lost to counterfeits, piracy and the grey market. In today’s fast-changing digital landscape, marketplaces can help brands add incremental sales – and build awareness. However, this also represents a huge opportunity for bad actors to sell their fakes.

With new fake listings popping up online in a matter of minutes, leveraging technology and marketplaces’ anti-counterfeiting programmes can add ease to the burden for brands.

In this webinar you’ll learn:

  • The impact of COVID-19 on retail and e-commerce
  • Some of the immediate actions that brands can take to protect their online revenue in light of the crisis
  • The latest developments in Wish’s brand protection efforts, including how to join as a brand partner from Wish.com
  • Actionable tips to leverage marketplaces’ brand protection programmes
