CHINA: Eight brand names banned from Shanghai market
Shanghai's counterfeit watchdog has banned the sale of eight brands at local fashion markets in further efforts to stamp out the sale of fake goods in China.
It follows last June's clampdown on Beijing's infamous Silk Street mall, where Chanel, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Adidas and Levi's were among the 23 brands to sign a memorandum with the landlords to suspend or evict any tenants found selling pirated products.
This was part of a series of court judgements in Beijing during 2006, which ruled in favour of several luxury fashion companies and fined the operator of the Silk Street market for breaking copyright law.
If the Shanghai vendors are found to break the regulations then market owners are entitled to cancel their leases, according to the report, which also said that the contract system has been used in the Qipu Road garment market in Zhabei District and the Yatai Xinyang fashion and gift market in Pudong New Area.
