Western Bohemia with counterfeits at market places and boutiques

(Pilsen, October 2, 2014) Inspectors of the CTIA in Western Bohemia carried out another successful inspection project that included two inspections in Železná Ruda. They collected more than a thousand of fake products of famous trademarks amounting to almost 2.5 million CZK when calculated in prices of originals. During the past four weeks they collected about 6,800 pieces of counterfeits – if these products were sold, the damage to owners of intellectual property rights would reach to more than 13.2 million CZK. “Selling fakes is not discovered only at marketplaces, but also in shops with so called luxury goods and they are available for corresponding prices. A boutique in Mariánské Lázně was imposed a fine amounting to 1 million CZK for unfair commercial practices – offering and selling counterfeits of branded products in the value of 4 million CZK when calculated in prices of originals. The fine became effective last week,” said Jan Řezáč, the Director of the CTIA Inspectorate seated in Pilsen.
