Initiatives to Protect Intellectual Property
At the BANDAI NAMCO Group, we closely cooperate with related companies to advance measures against counterfeit goods in Japan and abroad in order to protect the world views that IPs have and deliver safe and secure products to customers. In Japan, we monitor the domestic market, including online sales, and apply for import or export injunctions to customs as necessary to promptly detect, prevent the inflow of and eliminate counterfeit goods. Overseas, we take steps on our own to monitor and implement countermeasures against counterfeit goods in markets of respective countries, including online sales. In addition, we hold lectures at a university in Shanghai with the purpose of promoting enlightenment on the protection of intellectual property as part of our initiative to eliminate pirated goods. Furthermore, as a member of the International Intellectual Property Protection Forum (IIPPF), we cooperate with administrative institutions and related organizations of each country and make efforts to implement effective countermeasures.
