Real Deal Established in 2009, the Real Deal Campaign for Fake-Free Markets supports UK markets and protects consumers by working to keep traders in counterfeit goods and other illegal products out of the country’s markets and car boot fairs. The initiative is based on a national charter which facilitates closer partnerships between market operators and local trading standards services with the aim of protecting consumers, market traders, local businesses, communities, intellectual property rights owners and the national economy against the harm caused by the trade in fake products. By signing the charter, markets are listed on the campaign website and can display the Real Deal logo, demonstrating their commitment to maintaining a fake-free venue. There is no cost to join the scheme and PR support and materials are available. Founded by the Industry Trust for IP Awareness, Real Deal is supported by the leading organisations concerned with keeping markets fake-free. Visit
