Chinese customs seize counterfeit integrated circuit products

The Huangpu customs in south China's Guangdong Province said Tuesday (November 26) they have seized more than 1 million pieces of integrated circuits that infringed upon intellectual property rights. 

With a total worth of about 108,000 yuan ($15,350), the counterfeit products bearing the Japanese brand name "Murata" were intercepted in cross-border e-commerce, the authority said. 

The customs have seized a total of about 1.92 million counterfeit products since the launch of a special action of IPR protection this year, covering commodities such as consumer electronics products, clothing and suitcases. 

Huangpu customs oversees an important maritime foreign trade corridor in south China. In 2018, the total value of imports and exports under its supervision was around 1.53 trillion yuan. 

Since 2018, the authority has seized 6 million yuan worth of goods that were suspected to have violated IPR.
