Fakes from Czech marketplaces more often end in CTIA storages

(Brno/Ústí nad Labem, October 27, 2014) Violations of certain intellectual property rights by vendors who sell counterfeits of trademarks and patterns, including illegal copies of audio and video carriers, remain a special thing for marketplaces in border regions. This was confirmed by results of an inspection action carried out by CTIA inspectors from Ústí nad Labem and Brno in North Bohemian Hřensko as well as in South Moravian Hatě several days ago. Within these two inspection actions only the inspectors collected almost 500 pieces of products illegally labelled with famous trademarks amounting to more than 2.5 million CZK when calculated in prices of originals. The Act on Consumer Protection allows to impose a fine of 5 million CZK for this deceitful commercial practice.

The complete press release is available in the attachment.
