Abstract

We focus on the enforcement of trademark rights, particularly those used against counterfeiters, or those who use unauthorized trademarks of another. We examine the concept of extraterritorial enforcement of trademark rights — the extending of enforcement across national borders — and reviewing how different countries and jurisdictions view this concept or even allow it.

Keywords: trademark counterfeiting, international enforcement, criminal law, trademark law, extraterritoriality, intellectual property
