Riyadh, As part of its efforts to protect intellectual property rights, the inspection teams of the Saudi Authority for Intellectual Property (SAIP), in cooperation with the Ministry of Commerce, the General Commission For Audiovisual Media (GCAM) and Public Security, have conducted field tours targeting shops that violate intellectual property rights regulations in various regions of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
This comes as an extension of the regular field tours carried out by the inspection teams in public facilities and shops. During its first phase, the campaign focused on electronics facilities (outlets for the sale and maintenance of computers and satellite broadcasting devices), recordings, copying and photocopying centers to monitor violations of intellectual property rights that take place in the course of their activities.
SAIP emphasizes the importance of respecting intellectual property rights, and that it will not tolerate taking the necessary measures to hold accountable violators of regulations in all areas that the SAIP is concerned with protecting their rights. SAIP has provided communication channels through social media @saipksa, e-mail saip@Saip.gov.sa and the direct customer service number 920021421.
