Ralph Lauren Is a Company Built on Authenticity
As a global leader in the design, marketing, and distribution of premium lifestyle products for more than half a century, Ralph Lauren has a family of consumer brands that are some of the most recognized and sought after in the world. Consumers’ recognition and high demand for our products, which include apparel, accessories, fragrances, and home furnishings, have led counterfeiters to flood the market with fake products designed to deceive consumers into believing the products are authentic.
Counterfeits Are Worse Than You Think
The sale of counterfeit products eliminates tens of thousands of jobs held with legitimate businesses, jeopardizes fair wages and workplace safety, and negatively impacts economic growth. Importantly, counterfeit products pose a serious health and safety risk since they are produced without regard to laws or regulations meant to protect consumers. Moreover, profits from counterfeit sales are often used to fund large criminal organizations, including drug cartels and terrorist groups.
Protecting Our Brands
Ralph Lauren is fully committed to the protection of our brands and consumers against counterfeits. We have a dedicated team of brand protection specialists that continually police counterfeiters all over the world. Our brand protection team partners with customs offices, investigators, law enforcement agencies, and law firms around the world to shut down counterfeiting operations and remove counterfeit products from the market. Additionally, Ralph Lauren is a member of key organizations dedicated to brand protection, including the International Trademark Association, International AntiCounterfeiting Coalition, and American Apparel & Footwear Association.
