|In the context of IP enforcement, asset forfeiture is an important legal tool used to deprive criminals of the equipment and material used to produce counterfeit and pirated goods, as well as the proceeds derived from such unlawful activities. It is also designed to dismantle the financial infrastructure of criminal organizations and recover assets that may be repurposed to compensate victims and carry out additional law enforcement activities. In this session, we will explore the nuances of asset forfeiture in IP criminal proceedings and how it can contribute to the fight against counterfeiting and piracy.
