London-based licensing agency CPLG is doing what it can to safeguard its IP from plagiarism and counterfeiting. The company is partnering with the Trading Standards Department, London Metropolitan Police and the country’s immigration officials to target hotspots within the city’s boroughs of Hammersmith and Fulham, which have been identified by officials as hotbeds of knock-off goods.

Recently, plain clothes officials have seized counterfeit goods bearing the likeness of properties repped by CPLG, including The Pink Panther and Bruce Lee. CPLG says that it’s going to get even tougher on sniffing out fake goods as its new partnerships deepen.
