Poland - advertising

Advertisements for telecommunications services under scrutiny

The chairman of the Office of Competition and Consumer Protection (UOKiK) has taken legal action against two Polish mobile network operators, Polkomtel and PTK Centertel, and two telecommunications operators, Aster and Tele 2, Gazeta Prawna reported.
The aim of the proceedings is to examine if the imprecise phrases used in their commercials and advertisements constitute violation of consumers’ right to access to reliable and comprehensive information on available products and services.
If the suspicions of UOKiK are confirmed, its chairman will be in a position to demand that the companies cease their illegal actions and fine them 10% of their 2007 revenues.
