          Counterfeiting Sony Magnetic Disks

Trademark Owner: AA Company of Japan
Infringer: Zhuhai XX Group Company

Facts:

The petitioner, AA Company of Japan is a worldwide famous magnetic disks manufacturer. Its various kinds of products won great reputation in the world owing to the excellent quality.

In 1994, the petitioner found that Zhuhai XX Company produced in Zhongshan City, Guangdong Province and sold a great amount of counterfeiting poor quality magnetic disks for computer with the marks "Maxell" and "Sony"one of which is the marks of Sony Corporation in Tokyo of Japan”and labeled "Made in Japan".

The above-identified infringer's acts are obviously a kind of intentional infringement. It damaged petitioner's reputation and interests on the one hand, and damaged the interests of broad Chinese consumers on the other hand, and brought about negative influence on Chinese international reputation as well.

Therefore, the AA Company of Japan entrusted the agent of our Company to make complaint in Zhongshan City Administration for Industry and Commerce (Zhongshan AIC).

Resolution:

With the coordination and assistance of Zhongshan City Administration for Industry and Commerce, a lot of infringing illegal products were confiscated, and the infringer was imposed a fine of ¥200,000 (RMB).
