Samsung Fined In Taiwan For Misleading Advertising

NT$300,000 (roughly US$10,352) is what Samsung has to pay after the FTC, Taiwan’s Fair Trade Commission, has ruled to fine the company for misleading advertising. If course, the amount is insignificant for a company like Samsung and even the infraction might or might not have been intentional (or probably just a careless inattentiveness from the Marketing team).

Fact is that the FTC considers the online as well as printed advertisements for the Samsung Galaxy Y Duos GT-S6102 to be misleading. These ads described the camera on the aforementioned phone as being capable automatic focus and flash, when in reality it does not. Samsung has removed said descriptions.
