The Finnish Anti-Counterfeiting Group (FACG) is a Finnish association campaigning against counterfeiting and piracy.
FACG was founded in 1998 and joined the Global Anti-Counterfeiting Network (GACG) the same year. The members mainly consist of representatives of the Finnish industry as well as Finnish attorneys specialized in intellectual property rights.
FACG aims to promote a better understanding of the importance of anti-counterfeiting and anti-piracy in Finland and to work for an effective enforcement of anti-counterfeiting and anti-piracy laws. FACG keeps its members and the public informed of the current trends in counterfeiting and anti-piracy and the changing legislation in the field. FACG aims to encourage a more proactive role of the legislator and to train policymakers, judges and prosecutors in the field of IPR crime.
