A national charter has been created to help local authority trading standards services, market operators and copyright and trademark owners in their ongoing battle against dealers in counterfeit and other illicit goods at UK markets and car boot sales.
Launched under the banner Real Deal: Working Together For Fake-Free Markets, the Real Deal is supported by all the key public and private sectors organisations with responsibility for ensuring markets are safe, fake-free environments in which to shop and to trade. It is the first time that these organisations have joined forces to tackle this problem with a uniform, national approach. The fact that diverse organisations, representing trading standards, market operators and rights’ owners, are united on this campaign, is evidence of the scale of the problem of counterfeit trading at markets and car boot sales and the need to tackle it nationally.
