Sojuzpatent lawyers successfully defended in court the interests of Hasbro Inc. (USA) against an importer of counterfeit goods.
Counterfeit children's toys were discovered during a customs clearance at a customs post in Kaliningrad region and stopped by customs officials for additional inspection. The goods were marked with a designation confusingly similar to the TRANSFORMERS Decepticon trademark owned by Hasbro. Sojuzpatent lawyers filed a petition in the interests of Hasbro Inc. to bring the infringer to administrative liability for importing counterfeit goods. Customs arrested the goods, initiated an administrative case and filed a lawsuit in the Kaliningrad Region Arbitration Court.
Having considered the case, the court satisfied the claims, brought the importer of the counterfeit goods to administrative liability under part 1 of Article 14.10 of the Russian Administrative Offenses Code with the confiscation and destruction of the infringing goods.
