Sellers of fakes: Numbers of customers and CTIA findings don’t decline

(Continuous report of 3rd quarter of 2014)

(Prague, January 12, 2015) Inspections focused on counterfeits of various consumer goods offered in the Czech market continued in the 3rd quarter of 2014. Inspectors collected in total 12,445 pieces of products that violated certain intellectual property rights within one third of more than 400 inspections. If these products were sold, owners of intellectual property rights would be damaged by 22 million CZK. Different shortcomings were detected in another third of the inspections. In total 353 fines amounting to 3,400,400 CZK were lawfully imposed during the 3rd quarter of 2014. “Offering counterfeits of certain brands is ruled by consumers’ interest. As long as such interest lasts, the Czech Trade Inspection Authority will carry on inspecting and imposing sanctions,” said Mojmír Bezecný, the Director General of the Czech Trade Inspection Authority.
