Raid Seizures of Auto Parts and Alloy Wheels by Daimler AG

Thailand: IP Developments, Tilleke & Gibbins Client Newsletter

In mid-2008, Daimler AG found that counterfeit spare parts and accessories, especially alloy wheels, were being openly displayed and offered for sale on some Web sites and in shops in Bangkok. A series of market surveys and in-depth investigations were then conducted in order to reveal the identity of the illegal business operators and collect evidence to pursue legal actions. After months of strategic planning and preparation, successful police raids were carried out against three targets in Bangkok in October 2008. This article describes the impact of the raids.
