The global expansion of Chinese Internet marketplaces, such as ALIBABA, TMALL, or JD.COM, means that illegal Chinese products with counterfeit GIs are being exported to more and more countries. This results not only in loss of sales for the original manufacturers, but also in damage to their reputation. Their valuable brands are diluted, in some cases there is even the risk of claims for damages from misled customers.
Meanwhile, the legal framework for combating this type of counterfeiting in China has improved significantly. The Chinese Government’s awareness of the problem has grown and there are protection agreements with authorities of other countries. Thus, the prospects of effectively combating counterfeiters at source in China are improving.
