The employees of the tax authority seized a portable computer containing illegal automotive software and two car diagnostic devices.
The employees of the National Tax and Customs Administration (NAV) seized illegal software and fake car diagnostic tools from a man who offered the vehicle diagnostic tools for sale well below the market price.
According to the statement, after a test purchase, the financial officers checked the man and found 81 car diagnostic devices and their corresponding software. NAV staff also seized a portable computer containing illegal automotive software and two car diagnostic devices.
A consultant determined that the products were counterfeit, and the software was considered illegal automotive software. Based on the consultant’s opinion, the private individual caused more than HUF 126 million in damage to the rights holders, they added.
When inspecting the premises, the tax inspectors also found approximately one and a half thousand car emblems of various brands.
The contacted Hungarian representatives determined that the emblems were fakes, with which the person brought under the procedure caused – based on a preliminary calculation – about HUF 5.5 million in damage to the rights holders.
The financial inspectors filed a report against the man selling the goods due to the well-founded suspicion of committing the crime of violating intellectual property rights.
