The National Institute for the Defense of Competition and Protection of Intellectual Property (Indecopi), within the anti-piracy campaign in beaches ("Campaña Antipiratería en Playas"), urges those who visit Peru during the summer months to choose products and services that are legal and reject the counterfeit examples.
