Anticounterfeit Investigations Romania often is instructed by its clients to hand letters of “cease and desist” to various entities in Romania and Republic of Moldova.
A cease and desist letter, also known as “infringement letter” or “demand letter,” is a document sent to an individual or business to halt purportedly unlawful activity (“cease”) and not take it up again later (“desist”).
Anticounterfeit Investigations Romania serve such a document to an individual or a business, in order to let them know that what they’re doing or what they’re engaged in is unlawful and as such, they should stop whatever they do: selling counterfeit goods, using our client brand or label without right, in cases of trademark infringement, patent or contract breach, slander or libel cases, patent or copyright infringement, harassment notices and so forth.
The letters are served legally and a full report is made and sent to client, together with the signature of the served. We keep an indexed database with such servings, together with the circumstances.
Sadly, not always the people or companies served are complying with the requests put before them; many times over, they leave the premises where they were doing what they were doing and disappear. Obviously, we hear about their new gigs, sooner than later.

Obviously, this is the first step a client is taking, after we confirmed the existence of a breach situation. If things are furthered by our client instructions, we can and will go in-depth and collect legal and solid facts which will serve as proof in court for criminal activity of the infringing party.
