On April 4, 2022, Unified Patents and Rowan TELS Corp. announced a technology partnership to provide a free new service that will assist clients in identifying threats from counterfeit products. This partnership implements Rowan’s industry leading search technology for Unified’s clients and capitalizes on Rowan’s expertise in the anti-counterfeit market. Rowan Search is now available on the Unified website to give companies a free, real-time assessment of their exposure to counterfeit sales.
The search tool will scrape listings to identify sellers offering what appear to be suspicious or counterfeit versions of the brand owner’s products and provide a counterfeit “score” to indicate their level of exposure. From there, Unified Patents and Rowan TELS will organize and file legal actions, on a contingent fee basis, for those companies that wish to address this problem and deter future counterfeit sales.
