Protection against counterfeiting

Question

We sell consumer products around the world under an established brand name. We recently became aware that our products are being copied and sold under our brand name in Malaysia. Our distributor in that country is pushing local authorities to act; what can we do from this country to stop this. Our brand name is not protected in Malaysia, but this is a blatant copy of product and name
