Bulgarian Cable TV Provider Fined for Unfair Competition

Jan 20 2010 - 11:25

Bulgaria’s Commission for Unfair Competition has recently fined a cable television company based in the town of Stara Zagora in southern Bulgaria, with EUR 10,430 (USD 15,087) for the breach of fair trade practices.

The plaintiff, Krushev–Ilarion Krushev, claimed that the defendant, Trakia Cable Ltd.,
built a coaxial cable network on the territory of Stara Zagora and promoted and offered its services in June 2009, two months before obtaining the permission to use the network.

The Commission ruled that the defendant breached the fair trade practice by putting itself into a favorable position against its competitors.
