If you have purchased a product from a store, from a website or from a market and you beleive that it is counterfeit you can make a report to the Counterfeit Alert Network.
What Happens when I make a report?
When you make a report the information is confidential. The information you provide, such as the place of purchase and the product details are forwarded to the owner of the brand whose trademark has been infringed. The Australian Sporting Goods Association (ASGA) that runs the Counterfeit Alert Network may also pass your report to an investigatory company who may undertake an investigation on ASGA or the brand owner's behalf.
The brand owner may take action where they can track the product and prove that it is counterfeit.
The brand owner may also pass the information to the Customs and Border Protection Service so that they can monitor imports from particulat websites or merchants and take action.
Information may also be passed to other agencies such as Federal and State Police Services or the Australian Taxation Office.
It is important to report all purcahses of counterfeit products.
