Can brand owners 'follow the money' when their IP rights are infringed?**Wilko’s weren’t allowed toBy James Sweeting
The European Commission has launched an “Action Plan” for IP enforcement. The thrust behind the plan is to pave the way towards a “follow the money approach” to IP enforcement. You might think that this is a world where it is easier and more commercially viable for IP owners to take enforcement action against commercial scale infringers further up the supply chain. However, the plan appears to be targeted more at prevention than cure, with rhetoric of ‘education’ and ‘supply chain due diligence’ rather than active local policing. So will it become any easier in reality for brand owners to “follow the money” when remedying an IP infringement? A recent trade mark case involving Wilko’s shows that getting information about a supplier of infringing goods isn’t always easy.
