Jadong is strong in the field of anti-counterfeiting owing to the outstanding expertise and experience of our Anti-counterfeiting Team. Jadong is in close association with ABIDA, an investigation company founded in 2011 by Mr. Yunze LIAN. Under his leadership, ABIDA has successfully carried out thousands of investigations and raid actions against counterfeiters of many well-known international trademarks. Through ABIDA’s raid actions under his management, many counterfeiters have been successfully prosecuted and sentenced to imprisonment. ABIDA has in-house investigators, who specialize in finding counterfeiting factories, warehouses, shops, and counterfeit products.
Our Anti-counterfeiting Team is headed by our partner, Mr. Yunze LIAN, who has been a practicing IP attorney for 33 years, and is an expert on anti-counterfeiting. He is a frequent speaker on anti-counterfeiting at many international conferences, and also was a committee member of INTA's Anti-counterfeiting Committee.
We employ two main measures to stop infringement and counterfeiting. One is by judicial procedure and the other is by administrative procedure taken by the local government enforcement offices, like the AIC and TSB. In our practice, most of the infringement/counterfeiting matters are administrative: They are taken by the AIC and TSB, which is effective, time saving and efficient from a cost perspective.
In raid actions against counterfeiters, when the cases meet criminal criteria, we will take the judicial route: We request the relevant AIC or TSB to transfer the case to the proper Public Security Bureau for criminal prosecution.
We are strong in the fields of anti-counterfeiting due to our integrated anti-counterfeiting strategy, which consist of five parts:
