Cambridge Satchel Company aumenta i suoi sforzi per proteggere il marchio

Cambridge Satchel Company ha ingaggiato MarkMonitor®, leader nella protezione dei marchi online, per affrontare gli innumerevoli rischi legati alla contraffazione dei prodotti, alle violazioni del copyright e al cybersquatting che hanno afflitto il marchio sin dal suo successo immediato come una delle ultime ossessioni della moda mondiale.

Cambridge Satchel Company è cresciuta da un investimento iniziale di 600 Sterline nel 2008 a oltre 8 milioni di fatturato nel 2012. L'azienda è stata creata da Julie Deane, una mamma inglese con due figli, che, per poter pagare le tasse scolastiche e mandare sua figlia in una nuova scuola dopo che aveva subìto un episodio di prepotenza, si è buttata in questa avventura. La storia relativa alla crescita del marchio è presentata nell'ultima serie di annunci di Google Chrome "The Web is What You Make of It" (Il web è ciò che ne fai).

"La portata incredibile del web e le economie di scala hanno rivoluzionato il modo in cui i marchi si propongono ai clienti e conducono il proprio business. Ma proprio le qualità che rendono il web così attraente per la crescita delle aziende, allettano i contraffattori. Diventa facile e remunerativo per i ladri di marchi rubare nomi a brand famosi come Cambridge Satchel Company.", ha affermato Frederick Felman, Direttore marketing di MarkMonitor. "Aziende in rapida crescita e con una forte progettualità come Cambridge Satchel sono coscienti che la strategia di protezione del loro marchio merita il massimo livello di attenzione, al fine di poter proteggere i propri clienti e le proprie entrate".

Julie Deane ha attuato questi ulteriori sforzi per proteggere il marchio e salvaguardare il consumatore. "È una vera e propria vergogna che le contraffazioni e tutti questi siti fraudolenti stiano derubando i consumatori. Abbiamo ricevuto lettere ed e-mail da clienti che richiedevano la restituzione di cartelle di bassa qualità o che volevano sapere come mai le loro ordinazioni non erano state evase. Controllando il numero degli ordini abbiamo scoperto che non erano ordinazioni effettuate sul sito ufficiale di Cambridge Satchel Company, ma da uno dei siti fraudolenti. Stiamo lavorando a stretto contatto con i nostri avvocati per far eliminare questi siti, ma continuano a nascerne di nuovi, che utilizzano nomi nuovi e attuano nuove strategie", ha affermato Deane. "Usando impropriamente le nostre foto e altri materiali protetti da copyright, questi siti sembrano offrire ai clientidei prodotti autentici. Avevamo bisogno di un nuovo approccio che fosse basato su una profonda comprensione del web e dei canali digitali e per questo motivo ci siamo rivolti a MarkMonitor.

"Questi siti sfruttano il nostro nome, il nostro marchio e le nostre promozioni e non stanno solo rubando vendite a noi, ma ci costringono anche a ulteriori investimenti per aumentare i programmi di customer service e per le spese legali. Questi siti danneggiano il consumatore e ci distraggono dal nostro lavoro per la creazione di programmi di marketing positivi a favore dei nostri clienti".

Da quando MarkMonitor ha iniziato a lavorare con Cambridge Satchel, in pochi mesi abbiamo scoperto ed eseguito azioni legali contro oltre 1.000 elenchi di prodotti contraffatti su siti di vendita, alcuni dei quali riferivano la disponibilità di migliaia di prodotti. Il programma di protezione del marchio ha scoperto 29 siti di e-commerce che vendevano prodotti contraffatti e 76 siti di cybersquatting che usavano il marchio Cambridge Satchels nel nome del dominio.

Cambridge Satchel Company lavora scrupolosamente per proteggere il proprio business e lo scorso anno ha vinto una azione legale per violazione dei diritti di proprietà intellettuale contro il produttore che ora usa il nome Zatchels, (già Leicester Remedials and Sewing). Il contenzioso è stato risolto obbligando Zatchels a pagare una somma a Cambridge Satchel Company.

"La migliore protezione del marchio", ha affermato Julie Deane, "è costituita da un brand forte e in piena salute che fornisce un prodotto e un'esperienza eccezionali per il consumatore. Siamo continuamente concentrati sull'innovazione con nuovi stili e design per deliziare i nostri clienti e collaborare a livello mondiale con partner eccezionali. Quest'anno abbiamo stretto accordi di collaborazione per il design con aziende importanti come Comme des Garcons, Basso and Brooke, Christopher Shannon e Chris Benz; inoltre condividiamo programmi con Pantone, Disney, Google e altri progetti sono in cantiere. Siamo orgogliosi di ciò che abbiamo costruito; continueremo a investire nello sviluppo e nella protezione del marchio Cambridge Satchel Company, del suo design e dei marchi commerciali".

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...

It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...

In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.
Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...

Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist.
