LV literature: fighting counterfeiting

Thanks to my very good friend and true Louis Vuitton donna Biancaboo, I got my copies of the Fighting Counterfeiting booklet and a passport-like literature (later on that) issued by Louis Vuitton yesterday.

Here are shots of the Fighting Counterfeiting booklet, shared by Biancaboo, on the brand’s effort to raise awareness on the dangers of counterfeiting and the actions taken against it. Wikipedia writes that the brand is counterfeited and just over 1% of the items bearing the LV trademark is authentic. Ironically, the signature Monogram Canvas was created to prevent counterfeiting.

The 12-page booklet details that on a daily basis, there are 25 anti-counterfeiting raids, 60 new legal proceedings, 4 persons arrested and 1 website closed. Dedicated to fighting the profileration of counterfeiting, Louis Vuitton has a global team, headquartered in Paris, which works closely with law enforcement agencies around the world.

Louis Vuitton products are sold exclusively in Louis Vuitton stores, on and

Thanks, G!
