Demand drops for fake stuff

The percentage of those Hungarians rejecting bogus products has significantly risen from 2009, according to anti-counterfeiting interest group HENT.

The most notable changes came in the category of clothing, where the percentage of those claiming to reject the notion of buying fake branded apparel rose from 32% in 2009 to 60%.

Some 69% of Hungarians believe that those selling counterfeit products perpetrate a crime, also an increase of 4% from 2009. The attitude towards imitation goods is strongly affected by age.

While only 11% of older people admit to buying illegally manufactured products, 38% of the younger generations say they have done so. (press release)
