IPSTYLE prevented competitor’s trademark registration in China

IPSTYLE team has conducted a full audit of the evidence to argue the opposition

A software solution developer with a product in global demand contacted IPSTYLE requesting to register a trademark in Ukraine, the USA, the EU and China. During the registration process, it was revealed that another person had unfairly registered the client's trademark in China earlier. At first, a search was conducted, where the trademark was identified. This was followed by a preparatory stage of analysis and collection of evidence as well as supporting the drafting of an opposition in China.

The lawyers of IPSTYLE’s Brands, Designs, and Copyright Management Practices analyzed the peculiarities of opposition in China, to justify the position for the client's success, and conducted a full audit of the evidence to argue the opposition. In fact, in China, applicants should be vigilant in view of patent trolls common there, who track various businesses and try to register their trademarks for themselves. For such cases, we have well-developed and practically tested arrangements for protecting the client's interests.
