Type of case:

Deception of consumers

Undertaking(s) concerned:

Könyvmíves Könykiadó

Short description:

Könyvmíves Könykiadó failed to indicate in its publication - Magyar értelmező kéziszótár - (Hungarian Explanatory Concise Dictionary) that it contained a significant number of archaic expressions, based on previous dictionaries, and that it explained headwords several times with old-fashioned wording rather than in today-s meaning, thus the GVH conducted a competition supervision proceeding for deception of consumers.


Könyvmíves Könykiadó was fined HUF 500 thousand (approx. EUR 1700) by the GVH (the Hungarian Competition Authority) for the deception of consumers.
