16/05/14: People are Counterfeiting What?!

This sounds like one of those crazy ideas…stealing Fish Crates we understand but counterfeiting them?

A few weeks ago the Sydney Fish Market (SFM) was advised that operators have been receiving poor quality crates stamped with the SFM logo. The matter was investigated and SFM was given photographs and subsequently sample crates, and were able to immediately deduce that these crates had not been produced nor issued by SFM and are in fact, counterfeits.

Gus Dannoun at SFM said ‘These crates are not only an inferior product but because they bear the SFM logo, they infringe our trademark. We advised our solicitors who immediately commenced an investigation. SFM will be doing everything that the law permits to seek damages and costs for this breach of our trademark.’

He added ‘The SFM logo on the counterfeit crates is the same as that which was first introduced in 2003 though the obvious difference in the crates is that the logo on the genuine crates is hot stamped while the logo on the counterfeits has been screen printed.’
