(Prague, March 27, 2018) In 2017, the Czech Trade Inspection Authority carried out inspections focused on offer, sale and storage of products that infringe certain intellectual property rights. Counterfeits were detected in almost 30% of cases. Inspectors took in total 38,385 items of counterfeits in the value of originals amounting to almost 84 million Czech crowns. The following trademarks were among the most frequent counterfeited brands: Chanel, Adidas, Michael Kors, Ray-Ban, Minecraft, Pokémon-Wizards, Nike, and Minions. „Counterfeited goods still have their sellers and customers in the Czech market. During the last three years the Czech Trade Inspection Authority saw an increase of cases when sellers offer and sell counterfeited products. The increase was almost 10% during this period,” said the Director General of the Czech Trade Inspection Authority Mojmír Bezecný.
