Wal-mart domain name case and Royal Digital Technolgy Development website case of January 2006

The Wall Street Journal gives a briefing about the strained relationship between the US and China, more here. Nothing new, really. However, it also gives an overview of the IPR infringement cases the Chinese courts tackled in December 2005 and January 2006. Two highlights were not yet covered by IP Dragon. So here there are:

"January 2006: Beijing court orders a Nanjing company to return to Wal-Mart Stores Inc. four Internet domain names registered under the US retail giant's name.

January 2006: Harbin Court orders Harbin Fuzhao Technology Development Co. to pay 10,000 yuan in compensation and stop using the design, color and animation of a website of Shenzhen Royal Digital Technology Development Co."

On IP Dragon you can find the Ferrero Rocher (January 2006) case, Starbucks case (December 2005), Hennessy case (December 2005) and Bejing Silk Streek case (December 2005).
