In over 20 years
Of fighting counterfeiters and pirates across S.E Asia, Ray has first-hand experience in how innovative and resourceful they can be. Regardless of what measure or innovations that Brands, law enforcement agencies or consultants like Ray come up with, be it security tags, watermarks, secret markings, holograms, unique packaging etc, the counterfeiters always seem to be able to counter just about any new brand protection initiatives.
The new initiatives just never lasted long enough before the counterfeiters uncovered it rendering all the time and investment futile.
“As a member of the anti- counterfeiting community, I have often asked myself the question,
How long am I going to do this?
How many times must I do this?
I have contemplated giving up numerous times. It is exhausting, demoralizing, and frustrating to be playing David in the fight against Goliath all the time. A thin thread of hope kept me in the fight, and I did hope, a dream that if one day would arrive where every consumer can be armed and be made the largest anti-counterfeiting force ever assembled. That will surely change the landscape of anti-counterfeiting that will knock Goliath out.
But it was a dream and remained a dream while I continued struggling in the fight together with my colleagues in law enforcement and partners from the various brands that I represented”
