Hungarian innovation protection software that uncovers counterfeits was received in California with plaudits. At the congress of the International Trademark Association, Pintz and Co presented the product to 10,000 patent and trademark lawyers from 150 countries, the Hungarian Intellectual Property Protection Association told news agency MTI.
The software, which runs on several servers, simultaneously monitors the entire web’s one billion sites in real time, including Chinese sites and Facebook, uncovering fake products. The application is unique because it trawls through logos as well as text. The association said in a statement that the company will be making the software free of charge to Hungarian companies within a year.
