Firm fined for patent breaches

Updated 2017-07-25 09:48:23 Shanghai Daily

A Guangdong-based company has been fined 45,000 yuan (,665) by the local intellectual property administration for using an invalid patent sign and displaying a forged patent certificate in an exhibition hall in Songjiang District.

It is one of the stiffest such penalties issued in recent years, the administration said.

The administration received a report and found the patent sign on the packaging of products the electric company SunShane displayed in an exhibition hall on Baosheng Road was not valid.

After further investigation, they found the patent had expired and the products where the patent sign was used were not the ones for which the patent had been authorized. The patent certificate the company displayed had been forged, the administration said.

SunShane was ordered to stop using the patent sign and destroy the forged certificate.

The patent sign on unsold goods must be removed or blocked out.
