According to a press conference on resolving trademark examination pendency and cracking down on infringement at the Information Office of the State Council on December 9, State Administration for Industry and Commerce (SAIC) is vigilant in detecting and stopping squatting of famous trademarks and agricultural geographical indications (GIs) originated from Taiwan, effectively safeguarding rights and interests of Taiwanese trademark owners.
A principal from SAIC said that Trademark Review and Adjudication Board (TRAB) under SAIC attached great importance to cases relating to Taiwan’s trademark registrant and is determined to curb squatting of Taiwan’s famous trademark and GIs. Since 2006, TRAB has affirmed six well-known trademarks including Uni-RresidentGirdear, Want-Want etc. and some tea making areas such as Riyuetan Pool, Ali Mountain etc. And it also revoked and denied the mala fide application.
