BASELWORLD receives GACG Award
Jun '10
The World Watch and Jewellery Show BASELWORLD has received the GACG Award 2010 in Paris from the Global Anti-Counterfeiting Group (GACG) for its endeavours in the fight against product piracy and for the protection of intellectual property.

As part of the World Day against Counterfeiting, the show manage¬ment of the BASELWORLD Watch and Jewellery Show yesterday received the GACG Award 2010, the so-called "Trophée de l'Authentique”, in Paris from the Global Anti-Counterfeiting Group (GACG).

This award was made especially in recognition of the endeavours of the BASELWORLD Panel, which, as an internal arbitration tribunal for the show, has been engaged in the protection of intellectual property for more than 25 years and has thus been supporting the worldwide fight against counterfeit products. The BASELWORLD Panel has become established as a key institution here.

In the framework of the World Watch and Jewellery Show, anyone who feels that their immaterial property rights have been violated through the display of an object at the show can contact the BASELWORLD Panel. This arbitration tribunal decides within a day whether rights to a design, to trademarks or to invention patents are being violated or whether there has been a violation of copyrighted products. The decisions taken by the BASELWORLD Panel frequently have a major impact even beyond the actual show.

MCH Group Ltd., as the organiser of BASELWORLD, is also commit¬ted to tackling counterfeit products throughout the rest of the year. This it does through close cooperation with the watch and jewellery industry associations and also through the dissemination of infor¬mation in those countries in which the counterfeit products originate.
