Risk of Counterfeit Products
Murata is taking action to protect trademarks in each country.
We are aware that, unfortunately, counterfeit Murata products are in circulation, in particular in the East Asian region. These counterfeits are handled by electronic component trading companies other than our authorized dealers and electronic commerce sites other than those belonging to the Murata Group. The counterfeit products do not meet Murata’s quality standards, and may result in major equipment malfunctions.
To ensure that our customers do not mistakenly purchase counterfeit products, we recommend that they purchase only from Murata sales offices or authorized Murata dealers.
In addition, with the cooperation of government organizations and other entities around the world, we are working to crack down on businesses selling illegal counterfeit products (administrative investigation, criminal investigation, and civil suit), prevent sales of counterfeit products on electronic commerce websites, and correct and eliminate acts such as the use of trademarks without permission and false representations, etc.
In the future, we will continue to monitor the situation and take action.
