Raid and Seizure for HappyCall

HappyCall is a well-known Korean kitchenware manufacturer. A Thai TV shopping network began to run advertisements for a company offering counterfeit HappyCall frying pans for sale. In addition, the infringer offered the counterfeit frying pans for sale on its website and offered to deliver them in person to its customers.

We initiated the investigation by first confirming the location of the infringer’s company. We then coordinated with the Metropolitan Police Bureau to conduct a raid of the infringer’s premises. The police raid team, together with a representative of HappyCall, executed the raid.

As a result of the raid and seizure, 341 counterfeit HappyCall frying pans, valued at over THB 1 million, were confiscated. Subsequently, criminal charges were filed against the director of the company and the company itself for violation of the Penal Code of Thailand.
