Bristol, PA- Merit Entertainment’s anti-piracy program scored another victory as officers from the Dubai Police Economic Crimes Department recently arrested an Indian national and seized counterfeit Merit products in a March 18th raid.
The raid and arrest were based on the United Arab Emirates Copyright Law of 2002 and netted thirteen suspected ION™ update kits and thirty suspected Force™ motherboards. Merit’s attorneys from Cedar White Bradley assisted Dubai Police with the raid.
“This was the result of a two month investigation into counterfeit Merit products being sold in the U.A.E,” said Robert C. Fay, Merit’s Director of Government Relations. “We will continue our investigation regarding the customers of the Indian national and appropriate action will be taken.”
Merit’s anti-piracy program focuses on enforcing the company’s intellectual property rights and has produced strong results in several countries around the world.
“The Dubai raid and the raids in China two weeks ago resulted in criminal cases and show Merit’s commitment to fighting piracy in any country where our intellectual property rights are violated,” added Fay.
