Manzhouli of Inner Mongolia solved the largest IPR infringement case over the past 5 years

On January 9, the Manzhouli customs discovered and seized 573 pairs of sports shoes infringing upon the exclusive rights of trademarks including “Nike”, “Skechers”, “Reebok” and “SALOMON” when checking the luggages of an outbound car at the road port in Manzhouli. This case is the largest one cracked by the customs in Manzhouli at the port over the past five years.

In recent years, the customs in Manzhouli took multiple measures to enhance IPR protection by launching a series of campaigns for IPR protection and against counterfeiting, establishing the fast response mechanism to fight against infringement acts involving export goods, strengthening the application of means against risks, conducting the analysis of import and export big data and offering the early-warning parameters and deployment recommendation. Boxes and bags, garment, shoes and hats are considered as the key goods for supervision and examination based on the features of neighboring countries and export goods. Meanwhile, active efforts are made to launch the law-related promotion work and education.
