The Samara region Arbitration Court ruled in favor of Sojuzpatent’s client – Hasbro Inc. (USA) in an administrative offense case against an importer of counterfeit goods after the customs’ seizure according to part 1 of art. 14.10 of the Russian Administrative Offenses Code. After the receipt of notification from the customs post in Samara, Hasbro Inc. filed a petition for bringing the importer to administrative responsibility for importation of the infringing goods marked with the designation confusingly similar to Hasbro’s trademark.

Customs seized the infringing goods on the grounds of Hasbro’s petition and filed a lawsuit to the Samara region Arbitration court.

Having considered the case, the court satisfied the claims and brought the importer of the counterfeit goods to administrative responsibility with an administrative fee and confiscation of infringing goods marked with the designation confusingly similar to Hasbro’s trademark.
