In order to protect its legitimate interests, Lotus brought a trademark rights infringement and unfair competition action to LiLa, Weimeng and Youla Branch in May 2014 and obtained favorable appeal judgments end of 2017.

This is an important step forward following the promise of the Chinese government to improve property right regulations.

During this breakfast seminar the General Manager of Lotus Bakeries Asia, Mr. Ronald Drieduite, will discuss the key disputes of this case and track their claims and support in court and discuss. This case shows that comprehensive argument over the identification of whether the trademark is distinctive and whether it is used at law, and over the identification of the unique trade dress of the well-known commodity plays a role in guiding similar cases.
