Karen Lim, Erica Gould, and Katherine Lyon Dayton recently obtained "well-known mark" declarations in two actions before the Trademark Review and Adjudication Board in China on behalf of our client, a global professional services firm. Well-known mark declarations are rarely issued in China, especially for marks owned by non-Chinese entities. The declarations were based on evidence of media articles from a National Library search, printouts from the client’s website and other Internet sources, the client’s worldwide registrations, and the applicant’s bad faith.
