What This Week's Blogs Tell You About IPR in China (Week 38)

Monday, September 18 IP Dragon posted in June Debunking the Chinese Tourist in Europe Story. But now Susan Scafidi of Counterfeit Chic posted a Flickr picture in her Knockoff News 32 that seems to at least partly debunk the debunking story. On the picture one can read: "In France, buying or carrying a counterfeit product is a criminal offence punishable by up to 3 years imprisonment and a 300,000 euro fine." Of course it is unlikely that a Chinese tourist dressed in counterfeit clothing receives such a sanction, most probably certain thresholds need to be passed.
Martin Schwimmer of the Trademark Blog, linked to an article about Anna Sui who reclaimed her domain name in China, here.
