After more than 3 years of criminal proceedings and the interrogation of nearly 2,000 witnesses, two manufacturers of ED drugs have been granted what is believed to be the highest award of damages in Poland against a reseller of goods bearing counterfeit trademarks. Auschwitz court ordered the defendant to pay a total of PLN 265,470 (approx. EUR 63,500) to the plaintiffs. The court additionally awarded the plaintiffs costs of proceedings. The defendant, a repeated infringer, was sentenced to two years of deprivation of liberty conditionally suspended for five years. (Case ipf12-001)
