Conducted a five-day training course on enforcement of IPR laws from July 29th to August 2nd, 2019

Central Detective Training Institute at Ghaziabad, with a mandate to provide training to
in-service police personnel from the ranks of Sub-Inspector to Deputy Superintendent of
Police to hone their investigative skills by imparting the latest knowledge of scientific
techniques and best practices in the investigation, conducted a five-day training course on
enforcement of IPR laws from July 29 to August 2, 2019. Two out of the five days were
dedicatedly allotted to United IPR with the objective of training the officers on Patent,
Copyright and Trademark laws, along-with the investigative skills required to identify
and distinguish between genuine and counterfeit products.
The training was attended by 22 Police Officers from various districts in the state of Uttar
Pradesh and Delhi. The emphasis was at sharing specific inputs and intelligence on
the identification of products and of suspicious goods. The participating right-holders included Hugo Boss, Huda Beauty, Monster Energy,
Limited Brands (Victoria’s Secret, Bath & Body Works, and La Senza), L’Oreal, Procter &
Gamble, Polo Ralph Lauren, Under Armour, and Crocs.
Among the several courses run by the institution, the course on IPR laws has gained a great
deal of attention, as in many cases of IPR enforcement the officers were not familiar with
the penal provisions and technical distinctions enabling them to successfully prosecute,
convict and penalize the accused. The syllabus of the course was designed to provide
maximum exposure to the participating officers and was upgraded to make it more
relevant and topical. We are confident that with these regular efforts on capacity building of Indian
enforcement agencies, the attitude and environment will be more conducive to IPR
enforcement.
