Case: Damages at the amount of 13,500 euro for selling counterfeit clothes from a shop located on the main shopping street in Copenhagen

S was found to have been familiar with or should have been familiar with the involved trademark and that the goods were indeed counterfeit. S could not convincingly account for the origin of the goods and had not given trustworthy information about profits. Due to the concealment of evidence, the court decided that sale of counterfeit goods was a substantial part of S’ business and that this had caused significant detriment to the market of the original goods.

The entire judgement (V-148-04) in available on the website of the Maritime and Commercial Court (in Danish).
