Denmark: Mediacenter Danmark A/S accepts fine for customer sharing

The Danish company Mediacenter Danmark A/S has accepted to pay a fine of DKK 2,250,000 (€ 301,800) for infringement of the Danish Competition Act. A member of the management has accepted to pay a fine of DKK 50,000 (€ 6,700).

The infringement concerned customer sharing on the market for redistribution of unadressed mail.

The Danish Competition Council made a decision in the case in 2017 and decided to refer the case to the State Prosecutor for Serious and Economic Crime in order for a fine to be imposed.

The other involved company, MPE Distribution ApS, applied for leniency. As the company has cooperated with the authorities throughout the case handling, the company has been granted immunity.
