Kosovo Customs Destroy Nike, Gant Counterfeits

May 26 2011 - 14:20

On April 20, 2011, the Kosovo customs officials organized a destruction of 104 T-shirts and tracksuits found to infringe the intellectual property rights of Nike and Gant.

The goods were cut with scalpel knives at the customs premises in Hani i Elezit, border- crossing point with Macedonia, in the presence of the rights holders’ legal representatives. The goods were detained in March 2011 at the same border crossing point.

The goods were destroyed following the fast-track procedure under the Law on Customs Measures, which enables the right holders to avoid the lengthy and costly court procedures.
