Some of you may not be aware of a recent issue concerning the breach of IKD intellectual property rights. On 10-13 October 2018 a non-IKD organisation based in Turkey held a conference at which the IKD logo was displayed and used on its attendance certificates. The breach was compounded by photographs with the offending displays being made available on social media. Other misrepresentations were made, which I need not trouble you with.
The organiser of that event has been written to and a reasonable explanation provided with an apology and assurance the breaches will not be repeated.
You may care to disseminate the above among your organisations’ membership as a signal that the IKD guards its image and reputation closely and we do not tolerate blatant abuses.
