SportsOneSource媒体2007年10月29日报道：The North Face服装公司因商标专用权受到侵蚀将北京秀水街服装市镇告上法庭。检查机关一审判决秀水街截至侵害权益，赔偿THE NORTH FACE公司经济损失及诉讼费近4万元。
伟德国际weide1946，It has been well documented that American e-commerce platforms such as Amazon and eBay have become cesspools of counterfeits and other illegal and potentially dangerous goods that are mostly coming in from China, but, impervious to the apparent irony, Beijing is upping the regulations on foreign e-commerce merchants selling goods the other way.
Guangzhou Automobile Group's Trumpchi own brand has come one step closer to completion with the production of the GA3. The GA3, which will be priced between 75,800 yuan and 119,800 yuan ($12,272-$19,395), is the own brand's first entry into the compact market.
据书上说，THE NORTH FACE服饰集团控诉称，THE NORTH FACE公司在国内注册获得“THE NORTH FACE”文字商标、图形商标和文字图形组成商标的专项使用权。二零零五年6月，THE NORTH FACE集团发掘秀水街市集内大气售货假冒THE NORTH FACE公司注册商标商品，乞请法院判被告赔偿经济损失等一共50万元。
A global marketplace
In a report appearing in Beijing Business Today, GAC General Manager Wu Song stated that his team "has the highest expectations for the Trumpchi GA3 [pictured]", adding that he believes the new model will help the manufacturer achieve its monthly sales target of 5,000 units.
As we’ve previously covered:
In addition to the currently available 1.6 L version, the GA3 will also come with 1.3 L turbocharged and 1.5 L turbocharged engine options next year. It is supported by a front MacPherson and rear five-bar independent suspension, granting it superior handling performance. The GA3 is aimed at younger buyers with fashionable styling and a slew of accessories, including a multimedia entertainment system, power sunroof and independent climate control.

In a world that is fast becoming borderless for goods, borders remain one of the biggest legal loopholes of our time. By selling internationally, IP laws, health and safety standards, and labor regulations become moot. The counterfeiters who sell their goods on Amazon and eBay can hide behind their national fortifications, fully immune to legal prosecution, as they freely sell illegal and potentially dangerous items to unsuspecting consumers around the world -- such as this lady who had her eyes "glued together" by what she thought was designer eye shadow that she bought on eBay or this family from Tennessee who had their million-dollar house burned down and cats killed when a counterfeit hoverboard they bought on Amazon exploded.
GAC has plans to expand the Trumpchi brand even further. According to Deputy General Manager Huang Xiangdong, a new compact SUV and crossover are among the new models to be added to the own brand's lineup.

34,000 Trumpchis have been sold so far this year, over double the amount sold over the first half of 2012. According to Mr. Wu, GAC's Trumpchi brand has set respective sales targets of 120,000 vehicles and 250,000 vehicles for 2014 and 2015. /
The North Face won a lawsuit against a Beijing market that failed to stop the sale of fake versions of its products. The Beijing Xiushui Clothing Company, which operates the Silk Alley market, was ordered by a local court to pay 40,000 yuan ($5,300) in damages and legal fees to the North Face, Xinhua news agency reported.

Silk Alley -- a tourist area in Beijing that sells jeans, bags and belts, many of them seemingly counterfeit -- was taken to court after North Face last year found large quantities of counterfeits of its brand sold by vendors there. The North Face had demanded 500,000 yuan in compensation, according to Xinhua.
If a product is coming into the USA via B2C or F2C e-commerce it is virtually immune to government regulations, and products that would be otherwise deemed illegal if produced or sold domestically flow seamless across borders. While there are, of course, stacks of laws against counterfeit items and loads of consumer safety regulations, these legal safeguards are rendered impotent when dealing with foreign sellers, primarily because there are no legally liable parties within the jurisdiction of U.S. law to prosecute. Legal precedent has already been established that clears e-commerce sites like Amazon and eBay from responsibility for the products sold on their platforms, so criminals from abroad are pocketing billions selling illegal goods to Americans with complete impunity.
Beijing Xiushui argued that most of the fake brand clothing was ordered by customers and was not for public sale. But the court found some of the counterfeits were sold publicly and ruled that the firm had failed to fulfill its management duties.
This is not an exaggeration; this is the reality of cross-border e-commerce in the early 21st century. Globalization, technology, and consumer buying habits have gotten far ahead of lawmakers, which has ushered in a ‘Wild West’ atmosphere for those unscrupulous enough to take advantage of it.
