Honto? Honto! Fair in Chiba

On June 10, 2017 (Saturday), Japan and International Motion Picture Copyright Association (JIMCA) participated in the counterfeit goods eradication campaign “Honto? Honto! Fair in Chiba ~ Let’s Protect Information Security and Intellectual Properties ~”, which was held in Kashiwa City, Chiba Prefecture, by The Anti Counterfeiting Association (ACA) – Representative organizer: Yoshishige Shimatani/ Secretariat location: Chuo ward, Tokyo.

Celebrating its 30th year, the anti-counterfeiting event focused on the problem of intellectual property infringement on an evolving internet environment. The vent made a spirited appeal to consumers to protect intellectual property and eliminate counterfeit goods.

A total of more than 1,500 visitors attended the event, where they enjoyed various programs and activities on the subject of intellectual property, including a quiz rally to identify counterfeit and authentic goods, performed on the stage.

The event included live performances from local model group “Cosmic Club”; the four-times world championship winning cheerleading dance team “Kashiwa Golden Hawks”; a highly-talented singer, RENA; and the brass band of the Chiba Prefectural Police. The appearance of mascots “Sea-poku and Chiba-kun” drew a large cheer from the audience.

It is hoped that the campaign will provide greater awareness, particularly with young people, on the benefits of digital citizenship, and the harms resulting from accessing illegal content on the internet.
