The State Administration for Industry & Commerce (SAIC) recently approved 599 well-known trademarks, 410 of which were done through trademark administrative cases, 39 after trademark oppositions and 150 after review by Trademark Appeal Board under SAIC.
A representative from SAIC says that trademark administrations at different levels across the nation handle the well-known trademark proceedings timely and strictly in line with related regulations. The department involved takes advantage of sound trademark administrative law enforcement network and simple procedure and high efficiency, regarding the well-known trademarks as the key task in regular supervision and special campaigns. All these efforts have been proved to effectively safeguard the rights and interests of consumers and thus establish a positive image in IPR protection in the world.
