2. "Under Armour” Won “Uncle Martian” in Trademark Infringement in China
Chang Tsi & Partners represented UNDER ARMOUR, INC. in an influential trademark infringement and unfair competition case in China and won in the final judgment.
For a long time, fake brands have been infringing the intellectual property rights of the owners of well-known brands, e.g., Uncle Martian. With fake names, imitated appearances and lower prices, the copycat products may always work on the edge of the law and continue to make high profits in the end market.
