Never mind, the Maus Frères company, in a fair try to break down the barriers, reports two US companies: Facebook.com and iOffer.com.
Concerning Facebook, Maus Frères regrets a “Large number of Lacoste look-alike pages, using our trademarks, logos and images without authorization“. For example, Maus Frères ensures that, “Based on a visual analysis of the first 100 posts when searching “Lacoste bag”, 84% of posts were offering counterfeit bags for sale“. Maus Frères is tormented by the lack of proactive measures by Facebook to prevent the sale of counterfeit goods. In addition, suspended accounts would reappear under a similar name. Finally, Maus Frères is concerned about the possibility for counterfeiters of posting sales offers in private groups without being worried.
Maus Frères also targets iOffer. According to Maus Frères, the situation is worrying. In a large volume, 100% of the “so-called” Lacoste goods were considered counterfeit. Maus Frères regrets that sellers can register easily and that no procedure has been implemented to prevent counterfeiters from reoffending. According to the Swiss group, the vast majority of sellers are from China.
Finally, Maus Frères refers to the Mercadolibre platform, in all its extensions: .ar (Argentina), .bo (Bolivia), .br (Brazil), .cl (Colombia), .com.co (Colombia), .co.cr (Costa Rica), .do (Dominican Republic), .ec (Ecuador), .gt (Guatemala), .hn (Honduras), .mx (Mexico), .ni (Nicaragua), .com.pa (Panama), .com.py (Paraguay), .com.pe (Peru), .com.sv (El Salvador), .com.uy (Uruguay), and .com.ve (Venezuela). Again, Maus Frères reports a very large number of counterfeit goods: “Based on a visual analysis of the first 100 Lacoste listings: 92% were counterfeit products; 36% display the Lacoste logo in the search page thumbnail, 9% uses Lacoste copyrighted images“. Similarly, Maus Frères is having trouble preventing recidivism.
