Fake Product Scan

In cooperation with REACT Safe.Shop offers a fake product (more accurately called an anti-counterfeiting) scan. The Fake Product Scan is especially useful for market places and comparison sites. The scan is especially useful for market places and retailers selling a large variety of products. Use the Fake Product scan to prove you are doing your utmost to combat counterfeit products.

The scan of your webshop is based on the photographs (style, fabrics, labeling & packaging), the title of the offerings and the description of the goods.

The scan is done for three types of intellectual property right violations:

  • Counterfeiting of products: the sales of products which are identical or confusingly similar to genuine products which are protected by intellectual property rights
  • Copyright infringement: the use of images and other works protected by copyright law without permission
  • Unauthorized use: of a logo and/or trademark which are protected by a trademark and/or copyright

Bear in mind that Safe.Shop cannot guarantee with 100% certainty that the offerings on your site are not fake, for many reasons: images of original goods can be used while other products are shown; certain brands might not yet be known to the scan, etc.

Safe.Shop therefore maintains that it cannot conduct a full comprehensive pre-screening process to account for all violations. Thus, the ability to post such auctions of infringing merchandise does not mean per se that the sale of such merchandise is legal.

Rewarding the Safe.Shop - Fake Product Scan does not deprive individual rights owners from the right to act against alleged infringements.

Before granting the Safe.Shop - Fake Product Scan you need to include in your conditions:

  • An obligation to reimburse the price of the products, in case delivered products prove to be fake (to be determined by a rights owner and/or REACT).
  • An obligation to include a reporting system / a Notice and Take Down procedure according to up to date standards.

The fee depends on the frequency with which you like the scan to be done.

Frequency Annual Fee
Twice a year € 199
Once per quarter € 399
Once per month € 1199
Once per week € 5100
