On September 28, 2011, the Kosovo customs officials organized the destruction of 600 soccer balls found to infringe the intellectual property rights of Nike.

The balls bearing the Nike mark were seized last month at the Vermnice border crossing point with Albania. They were cut with scalpel knives at the Vermnice customs premises. Their value is estimated at EUR 1,500 (USD 2,070).
