Anti-counterfeiting measures and intellectual property There is no MTG product,
which can be reproduced perfectly without the supervision of MTG engineers.
Counterfeit products that lack verifications of safety and effectiveness have flooded the world.
We are focused on asserting our intellectual property rights and on anti-counterfeiting measures in order that customers receive only genuine products; the fruits of MTG's technology.
We will continue to commit ourselves multilaterally to protecting the beauty and health of our customers.

Intellectual Property

With its diverse range of brands, the ways in which MTG is being affected by counterfeits is diversifying.
We work to eradicate counterfeit products in order to protect our consumers and the efforts of our engineers,
not simply to win a fight. As part of these measures, we acquire a number of patents which assert the exclusivity of our ideas.
Furthermore, we also invest great energy into preserving important rights,
such as design rights to protect our designs and trademarks to protect our brands.

To Protect Our Customers from Health Hazards Posed by Counterfeits

Tsuyoshi Matsushita

With the rapid globalization of E-commerce, in recent years we have witnessed damage caused by counterfeits spreading via the Internet to a global level, where the deceptions are becoming increasingly cunning and malicious.

Counterfeits typified by copycat products can potentially compromise our customers' health due to their poor quality, as well as cost us potential markets and damage our brand image.

MTG will continue our commitment to our worldwide activities with the goal of eradicating counterfeits from the global market in line with our no-tolerance policy for counterfeits to protect our customers from health hazards posed by such ill-engineered counterfeits and deliver safe and reliable products to our customers.
