Decision of the Competition Council of the Hungarian Competition Authority (Gazdasági Versenyhivatal - GVH) Vj-39/2006: Notebook.hu
The Competition Council of the Hungarian Competition Authority (Gazdasági Versenyhivatal - GVH) established in its decision, issued on 21 August 2006, that Notebook.hu infringed the provisions on the prohibition of unfair manipulation of consumer choice of the Hungarian Competition Act.
In the competition supervision proceeding the Competition Council of the GVH concluded that the Notebook.hu`s large advertising placards were capable of misleading consumers because the explanation of the price, which was considered as crucial by the Competition Council, was not indicated with the same emphasis on the advertisements. The Competition Council of the GVH imposed a fine of HUF 3 million (approx. EUR 10500) on Notebook.hu for its unlawful behaviour.
