Supporting Japanese Border Control Measures Against Counterfeit Products

Due to the amendments in the Trademark Act, Design Act and Customs Act, effective as of October 1, 2022, bringing counterfeit goods into Japan via postal mail and other means by overseas businesses is now clearly defined as illegal. Therefore, even if for private use, counterfeit goods (that infringe on trademark or design rights), such as those sold via e-commerce, sent to Japan by overseas businesses will be subject to confiscation at the Customs. Canon will continue to cooperate with the Customs and enhance its border measures against counterfeit goods.
