Legal action against social media for selling fake products


#1

Hi,

I saw several pages on social media such as facebook & twitter, selling fake copies of branded products. Is it not a cybercrime? How to stop such fake & illegal activities? Is there any cyber law provision for the same?

Regards,

There are two ways to solve the issue of selling fake products on Social media:

  1. You can make a cyber crime complaint to the nearest Cyber Crime Cell against such social media posts or
  2. You can also file an injunction in civil court to restrain the selling of copies of the branded product. To file injunction you need details and brand name of such product and some photos of such product selling page.
