Five held for selling fake World Cup apparel in Qatar

The Economic and Cyber Crimes Combating Department at the General Directorate of Criminal Investigation has arrested five people for promoting the sale of clothes bearing the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 logo without obtaining prior approval from FIFA.
It is noteworthy that the Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) had previously published many awareness messages regarding the use of intellectual property rights associated with FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 without obtaining the prior written consent of FIFA.
The competent authorities urge everyone to abide by the laws and regulations governing intellectual property and not to violate the rights of others to avoid legal accountability.
