Plagiarius: a black dwarf with a golden nose

Aktion Plagiarius - Innovation vs. Imitation

Since 1977 Aktion Plagiarius e.V. grants its anti-prize "Plagiarius" to those manufacturers and distributors whom the jury has found guilty of making or selling "the most flagrant" imitations. The goal is to denounce the unscrupulous business practices of counterfeiters, who pilfer intellectual property and pass it off as their own creative achievement.

We provide detailed information about our aims and activities as well as the possibilities of how to sensitise your employees, sales partners or clients by our exciting Plagiarius-Exhibitions (original vs. fake) and / or informative and hands-on lectures concerning the problem of brand- and product piracy. The damages on part of the brand name producers are immense, just as much as the serious risks for the consumers.

If your are interested in learning how the negative award "Plagiarius" started or how to get a member of our registered society, here are the answers.

The Museum Plagiarius in Solingen (Germany) shows the Plagiarius prize winner products from 1977 up to now. We look forward to your visit.
