Anti-counterfeiting hotline

The anti-counterfeiting hotline has a dual purpose: on the one hand to receive information on violations of intellectual property rights and enable immediate intervention; and on the other to provide information on the subject and on the protection provided by law, in order to support persons who are victims of counterfeiting. The service is provided by the collaboration of specialised personnel from the Guardia di Finanza (Finance Police), on secondment with the Directorate-General, who, after carefully examining and evaluating the information they receive, can involve other branches of Italian law enforcement (especially the "Special Units" of the Guardia di Finanza itself) and the anti-fraud service of the Agenzia delle Dogane (the Italian revenue & customs service).
