IPR attorneys say the darndest things:
"Profits of Panda names not to be enjoyed by a unique person"
ChinaDaily who uses the ShanghaiDaily as its source has an article about the websites names, named after the giant pandas that were given to Taiwan as a political gesture; www.tuantuan.com and www.yuanyuan.com, etc., are being sold by Peng Zhangsheng at www.EachNIC.com.
They even interviewed IPR attorney Gu Huimin of Shanghai NORSN Law Firm who says:
"Though the Websites don't involve trademarks or corporate names, the giant pandas are of public interest. Profits from these names shouldn't be enjoyed by a unique person."
Right, IP Dragon thinks only the owners of the names should profit from them: in casu the pandas.
"If the government thinks the Websites tarnish the seriousness of panda-giving issue or influence the relationship between the Chinese mainland and Taiwan, it may cancel them. Then buyers can face a serious loss, if they pay a lot."
