They neglect due diligence to the placing on the market and make the 'cut and paste', without inquiry or developments. However, the Samsung brand is friendly procedures to offer reliable products to Mauritians. Counterfeiting has taken a considerable size and is amplified by the opportunities offered for sale on the Internet, especially on social networks. No economic sector is now saved. Unfair competition for businesses, job destruction, danger to the health and safety of consumers, the fight against counterfeiting is a necessity or a priority.
