2019610日,安徽省马鞍山市市场监督管理局根据投诉,对马鞍山上嘉食品有限公司进行检查。经查,当事人自 2018 9 月起,生产牌生粉,上述产品使用的商标与米拉尼有限公司的注册商标近似。

On June 10, 2019, the Municipal Market Supervision Administration of Ma'anshan, Anhui Province, inspected Ma'anshan Shangjia Food Co., Ltd. upon complaints. After investigation, Shangjia had been involved in the production of "" brand cornstarch since September 2018, and the trademark used for the above product was similar to the registered trademarks of Meelunie B.V.

201987日,办案机关认定当事人在同一种商品 上使用与米拉尼有限公司注册商标近似的商标,容易导致混淆,构成《中华人民共和国商标法》(以下简称《商标法》)第五十七条第二项规定的侵权行为,根据《商标法》第六十条第二款,责令当事人立即停止侵权行为,作出没 收侵权商品和主要用于制造侵权商品的未使用包装、罚款 150.40 万元的行政处罚。

On August 7, 2019, the case-handling authority determined that Shangjia used a trademark similar to the registered trademarks of Meelunie B.V. on the same goods, which could easily lead to confusion, and constituted the act of infringement under Article 57(2) of the Trademark Law of the People's Republic of China (hereinafter referred to as the Trademark Law). According to Article 60.2 of the Trademark Law, Shangjia was ordered to immediately cease the infringement act, and the administrative penalty of confiscation of infringing goods and unused packaging mainly used to manufacture the infringing goods, and a fine of 1.504 million yuan were imposed.

当事人不服行政处罚决定,先后提起行政复议和行政诉讼,马鞍山市人民政府与马鞍山市雨山区人民法院均维2/ 16持行政处罚决定。2020 1028日,马鞍山市中级人民法院终审判决,驳回上诉,维持原判。202012 30 日,安徽省高级人民法院驳回当事人再审请求。

Shangjia refused to accept the decision of administrative penalty and filed administrative review and administrative litigation successively. The Municipal People's Government of Ma'anshan and the People's Court of Yushan District, Ma'anshan, both upheld the decision of administrative penalty. On October 28, 2020, the Intermediate People's Court of Ma'anshan made the final judgment to reject the appeal and uphold the original judgment. On December 30, 2020, the High People's Court of Anhui Province rejected the request for retrial of Shangjia.

According to the investigation, starting from July 2018, Feitong entrusted Yantai Aoweiyiman Wine Co., Ltd. to process and produce the "BURKE LAFAEL" series of dry red wines. Feitong provided wine bottles, wine caps, wine bottle labels, inner and outer boxes and other materials. Among them, the design and production of the wine bottle labels were entrusted to Shenzhen David Gospel Packaging Design & Printing Co., Ltd. based on the patterns provided by Feitong, and then the labels were handed over to Yantai Aoweiyiman Wine Co., Ltd. for labelling.

202064日,上海市浦东新区人民法院依法作出刑事判决,判处被告上海菲桐贸易有限公司犯假冒注册商标罪,罚金10万元;被告人诸葛某某(系上海菲桐贸易有限公司实际经营人)犯假冒注册商标罪,判处有期徒刑16个月,缓刑16个月,罚金5万元;查获的假冒注册商标的葡萄酒予以没收;禁止被告人诸葛某某在缓刑考验期限内从事食品生产、销售及相关活动。

地理标志是特定地区的宝贵资源和财富。生产销售假 冒地理标志的商品,会严重损害地理标志声誉,严重侵害特定地区生产经营者的竞争优势等合法权益。保护地理标志既是我国履行知识产权保护国际条约义务的体现,也是我国推进乡村振兴战略的重要举措。有观点认为,《刑法》 第二百一十三条假冒注册商标犯罪的侵害客体不包括集体商标和证明商标。本案的查处,从实证角度明确了地4/16标志集体商标属于假冒注册商标犯罪的侵害客体,体现了我国对国内外地理标志商标的同保护,反映了我国商标行政执法跨地区协作机制的有效运行和商标行政执法与刑事司法的有效衔接。(江西省抚州市人大法工委 黄璞琳)

Geographical indications are precious resources and fortune of a specific area. The production and sale of goods with counterfeit geographical indications will seriously damage the reputation of geographical indications and infringe upon the legal rights and interests, such as the competitive advantage, of producers and operators in specific regions. The protection of geographical indications is not only a manifestation of China's fulfillment of its obligations under international treaties for the protection of intellectual property rights, but also an important measure to promote its rural revitalization strategy. There is a view that the infringement object of the crime of counterfeiting registered trademarks under Article 213 of the Criminal Law does not include collective trademarks and certification trademarks. The investigation and handling of this case demonstrates and clarifies that collective geographical indication trademarks belong to the infringement object of the crime of counterfeiting registered trademarks, which reflects the "equal protection" of geographical indication trademarks at home and abroad in China, and reflects the effective operation of the cross-regional cooperation mechanism for trademark administrative law enforcement and the effective connection between trademark administrative enforcement and criminal justice in China.

该案涉及侵权商品的生产、加工、销售等全链条,执法机关从个案的调查摸排,到辖区内同行业的集中调查,扩展为全国多个省份的联合打击,最终成功端掉制假售假窝点。该案涉案地域广,涉案企业多,涉及多个商标,案情复杂,行政执法部门跨区域联动,全链条打击,并与公安机关密切协作,充分体现出行政保护的优势。(江苏商标品牌研究中心主任 徐升权)

This case involved the entire chain of production, processing, and sales of infringing goods. From individual case investigation and thorough search to concentrated investigations in the same industry within its jurisdiction, further to a joint attack by multiple provinces across the country, the law enforcement authority finally successfully cracked down the dens of manufacture and sale of counterfeit products. Many companies and multiple trademarks within a wide range of territories were involved, and the case was complicated. The administrative law enforcement authority coordinated across regions, cracked down the whole chain, and worked closely with the public security agency, which fully demonstrated the advantages of administrative protection.
