Concrete mixers recognized counterfeit
Khasan Customs initiated a court case as a result of which the court recognized as counterfeit 5 concrete mixers marked with the trademark “HINO” that were to be imported to Russia.
The trademark “HINO” is included in the Customs IP Register. The trademark owner did not give his permission to use the mark, hence the customs suspended the release of those construction machines.
Following a complaint submitted by Gorodissky & Partners, representative of the trademark owner, the Khasan customs filed an administrative suit against the importer on the basis of Article 14.10, part 1 of the Russian Code of Administrative Offences – illegal use of a trademark or of a similar designation.
In May 2015, the 5th Commercial Court of Appeal ruled that the said concrete mixers were counterfeit. The infringer was fined in the amount of 30 thousand rubles (over 500 US dollars), the counterfeited goods were confiscated.
