Chinese land casino firm Galaxy Entertainment has announced that it will be cracking down on groups and websites that infringe on their trademarks and brands.
The company released a statement this week, noting that the are planning to crack down on websites that are fraudulently using their logo and name to lure punters to gamble online. The announcement comes shortly after the Las Vegas Sands group issued a similar warning to those who infringe on their logos and names.
The statement read: "Galaxy Entertainment Group Limited and its subsidiaries and all of our properties, including Galaxy Macau, StarWorld Macau Hotel and Broadway Macau have no affiliation with any online gambling and betting site nor have we authorised any website, company or person of any origin to solicit, carry out or promote any form of online gambling and betting activities for and on behalf of the Group."
Galaxy is gearing up to launch its latest Macau property in May, possibly leading the group to take pre-emptive measures against sites that would fraudulently use the group's logos.
