Updated: 14:39’ - 26/04/2011

Greater awareness of the real impacts of intellectual property rights (IPR) violations is key to fighting piracy and counterfeiting, experts said at a workshop on April 20 in Ho Chi Minh City.

They said those who committed violations or supported violations by buying counterfeit products should know that they harm the economy, businesses as well as the vast majority of consumers.

IPR violation was a major hazard for honest businesses, consumers and national economy in terms of loss of sales, loss of competitive standards, low quality and risk to consumers, said Professor Laurent Manderieux of Italy’s Bocconi University.

Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade Nguyen Cam Tu suggested Vietnam focus on perfecting the legal system and implementing a strong campaign to raise public awareness on IPR enforcement.

The Vietnam Anti-Counterfeiting and Trademark Protection Association also called for changes in the public awareness about IPR protection and close cooperation between agencies enforcing IPR laws and business associations.-
