German Customs Raid Hyundai at IFA

German customs police raided Hyundai IT Corp in Berlin on Saturday, seizing flat-screen televisions from its stand at IFA, the world's largest consumer electronics fair.

A German court had ruled late on Thursday that Hyundai and other east Asian and European firms were marketing unlicensed patented technology at IFA and authorized 69 raids, a spokesman for Berlin's customs investigation office said.

A Reuters photographer witnessed uniformed customs police removing Hyundai's flat-screen televisions in front of the public and trade visitors, leaving an empty stand with wires hanging from it.

Similar but smaller raids have taken place at other German technology fairs such as Hanover's Cebit in recent years.
