PHP 6-M fake shirts seized

The National Bureau of Investigation confiscated fake t-shirts worth P6-million in simultaneous raids in Valenzuela City.

Raided were the stockroom and factory of the Platinum Integrated Philippines Corp. in Marulas and Karuhatan in Valenzuela.

Seized from the two establishments were 13,693 counterfeit Lee and Warner Bros. t-shirts.

The NBI placed the establishments under surveillance to confirm the complaint of Orion Support Inc., a market research firm representing the Intellectual Property Rights of Lee and Warner Bros.

The owner of the raided establishments will be charged with trademark infringement and unfair competition under the Intellectual Property Code of the Philippines or Republic Act 8293.

Intellectual Property Rights

OSI has investigated several thousand IPR infringers and successfully raided over 2,500 illicit manufacturers and major importer/distributors, Philippine-wide, since 1992. And their success rate hovers at just under 98% over the last 22 years, a significant accomplishment in an industry known for significant corruption.


Commercial Investigations

While OSI's three senior managers have many years of investigative experience throughout Europe, the Americas and other areas within S.E. Asia, they have over 70+ years of such experience and investigative contacts throughout the Philippines. And, they have established a proven and successful track record as reflected by their client list outlined on the client page of this website.


Security Risk Management

OSI's Security Risk Management division supports the protection initiatives of major international and local corporations doing business throughout the Philippines. In-country operational regions include the major high risk areas in Mindanao, where current activities include performing in-depth security and political risk assessments, security program audits, VIP protection operations, and counter insurgency collections.
