The Kingdom Strikes Again: Millions of Counterfeits Destroyed in Saudi Arabia

August 31, 2021

The Saudi Authority for Intellectual Property (SAIP) is continuously proving its prowess after it has successfully confiscated and destroyed more than 5 million items that were in violation of intellectual property rights.

The infringing products that were confiscated by the SAIP in a sting operation alongside the Zakat, Tax and Customs Authority and the Ministry of Information.

This massive takedown operation comes as the culmination of many successful campaigns by the SAIP that targeted various cities in Saudi Arabia as part of their efforts to raise awareness and enforce intellectual property rights within the Kingdom. Ever since its inception, the SAIP has made it clear that there will be no clemency for any violation of any intellectual property rights.

Such developments are a clear testament to the fact that Saudi Arabia is nurturing the right environment for the protection and enforcement of intellectual property rights.
