Moncler, the French-Italian brand most known for its down jackets and sportswear, announced the Intellectual Property (IP) Court in Beijing has awarded the Group 3 million RMB (approximately EUR 420,000) in relation to intellectual property trademark infringement by Beijing Nuoyakate Garment Co.,Ltd.

蒙克莱,这个以羽绒服和运动装而著名的法国意大利品牌宣布,北京知识产权法院已判决北京诺亚卡特服装有限公司在侵犯其商标权一案中,给予蒙克莱3000000人民币(折合约420000欧元)的赔偿。

Moncler discovered in 2013 Nuoyakate was not only manufacturing and selling down jackets with counterfait Moncler logos, but also making attempts to register several fraudulent trademarks and domain names in China and other markets. The outerwear label decided to sue Nuoyakate in December 2014 and the IP Court in Beijing decided that Nuoyakate’s behaviour constituted trademark infringement and a violation of Moncler IP’s rights. This represents a revolutionary sentence and the first judgement under China’s New Trademark Law to grant the maximum statutory damages in cases of counterfeiting.

蒙克莱公司于2013年发现诺亚卡特公司不仅使用假冒的蒙克莱商标制造销售羽绒服,还曾企图在中国和其他市场注册多个仿冒商标和域名。201412月蒙克莱决定起诉诺亚卡特公司,北京知识产权法院最终判决诺亚卡特公司的行为构成侵犯商标权和蒙克莱公司的知识产权。这是个具有代表性的判决结果,并且是在施行中国新商标法后,首次针对假冒商品判定的最高法定赔偿额。

This victory is important for Moncler also because highlighs the effort made by the Group to tackle the international trade of counterfait products.

这一胜利不仅仅对蒙克莱而言非常重要,同时凸显出了其在对反假冒商品国际贸易中所做出的努力。
