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 a customs seizure under Part 1 of Art. 14.10 of the Russian Administrative Offenses Code. After receiving notification from the customs post in Samara, Hasbro Inc. filed a petition to bring the importer to administrative responsibility for importing infringing goods marked with a designation confusingly similar to Hasbro’s trademark.
Customs seized the infringing goods on the grounds of Hasbro’s petition and filed a lawsuit in 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 the infringing goods marked with a designation confusingly similar to Hasbro’s trademark.
