About Gulf Brand Protection Group

In 2005 a group of those alarmed at the continuous illicit replication of genuine goods and interested in the enforcement of intellectual property rights joined hands to form “The Brand Owners’ Protection Group”.

The Brand Owners’ Protection Group (BPG), a non–profit organization aims to use all legal means at its disposal to achieve improvement in the brand protection environment across the Gulf Region. The group focuses on education of the business community, consumers, media and interaction/collaboration with authorities – local, regional, and international – to strengthen the enforcement of those laws governing illicit trade in all its forms.

The Brand Owners Protection Group (BPG) of the Gulf Co-operation Council (GCC) & Yemen seeks to maximize the efficiency and power of the combined efforts of multinational corporations to achieve their goals in Brand Protection.

About Scribos - a KURZ Company

In our experience, a sustainable brand protection programme must convince in the three dimensions of security, effectiveness and scalability. Only by fulfilling these three dimensions the customer receives true value: Counterfeits are driven out of the market and trust in the brand is strengthened. 

As a market-leading provider of brand protection solutions, we continuously evaluate our solutions along these three dimensions and try to strengthen them through technological innovation. 

This is how we push the boundaries of what is possible in the field of brand and counterfeit protection every day.
