How to handle brand infringement?

Firstly, if one of the acts infringes the exclusive right to use a trademark as listed in the trademark law and causes a dispute, the parties involved should resolve it through negotiation.

Secondly, in the case of trademark infringement disputes where the parties involved are unwilling to negotiate or negotiation fails, the trademark registrant or interested party may file a lawsuit with the people’s court or request the administration for industry and commerce to handle the matter.

Thirdly, if the lawsuit is filed with the people’s court, it shall be conducted according to the procedures prescribed by law; if the matter is handled by the administration for industry and commerce, if the infringement is established during the handling process, the infringing act shall be immediately stopped, the infringing goods and tools specifically used for manufacturing infringing goods and forging registered trademark signs shall be confiscated and destroyed, and a fine may be imposed.

Fourthly, if the parties involved are dissatisfied with the handling decision of the administration for industry and commerce, they may file a lawsuit with the people’s court in accordance with the Administrative Litigation Law; if the infringer fails to file a lawsuit and fails to perform within the prescribed period, the administration for industry and commerce may apply to the people’s court for compulsory enforcement.

The fifth point is that the administrative department for industry and commerce that handles the case may mediate the amount of compensation for infringement of trademark exclusive rights upon request by the parties involved. If the mediation fails, the parties may file a lawsuit with the people’s court in accordance with the Civil Procedure Law.
