MOSCOW, November 28 (Itar-Tass) — Domodedovo Customs officers after three months of careful check measures have passed to law enforcement authorities the materials on the fact of smuggling of a large consignment of counterfeit goods into the customs territory of the Customs Union.
The Federal Customs Service (FCS) reported on Monday that in August 2011 a Russian organisation, through its representative filed a declaration at the customs post of Domodedovo airport (cargo terminal) on goods under the Smart Wireless Devices brand name. As a result of customs inspection it was found that instead of the declared goods the legal entity under the declared brand name was factually moving through the customs border of the Customs Union goods under Nokia trademark. These were car charges and mains chargers, headphones, a total of 8,095 pieces.
FCS emphasised that the trademarks of Nokia and Nokia Connecting People are included in the customs register of the intellectual property rights objects of the FCS of Russia, so customs officials sent an inquiry to Nokia Corporation in the Russian Federation. According to its representative, trademarks of Nokia on the imported devices were put illegally without the consent of the copyright holder.
This legal entity was not given the right to put these products into circulation in the territory of the Russian Federation.
In accordance with the opinion of the authorised expert organisation, the market value of the counterfeited goods batch is more than 6.5 million roubles.
An administrative offense protocol was drawn over this fact under Article 14.10 of the RF Code of Administrative Offences (illegal use of trademark), and the administrative offence case materials were sent to the Moscow Arbitration Court. In addition, since signs of a criminal offense under Article 180, part 1 of the RF Criminal Code (illegal use of trademark) are seen in action of the representative of the legal entity, the case materials have been transferred to the police.
