Furthermore it provides information on the measures that Messe Frankfurt is taking against copying, for example information initiative for exhibitors and visitors, services for exhibitors and visitors, cooperation with the authorieties, customs inspections and confiscations, round table brand and product piracy. The Messe Frankfurt is organising as well: "The Idea" competition and the Action Plagiarius.
