The Ministry of Commerce and Industry has confiscated over 436 boxes of replica inks used in photocopiers and printers in several stores on Tuesday.

The Ministry's copyrights department is taking legal measures against those responsible, and will send the replica inks to the forensic evidence department at the Ministry of Interior, Assistant Undersecretary for international organizations and foreign commerce affairs Sheikh Nimer Al-Sabah told Kuwait News Agency (KUNA).

Sheikh Nimer also noted that the Ministry has executed thorough inspections on ink-selling stores after receiving complaints from owners of authentic ink companies, regarding the presence of fake products carrying their brand labels.

The Ministry had recently formed a committee to protect copyrights, in coordination with the Ministry of Interior, Ministry of Information, Ministry of Health, Kuwait's Municipality and the customs department, aiming to fight fake and replica products.
