02/08/2020 – The Customs Service of Lianyungang County (Jiangsu Province, China) has detained 40 bearing sets with the SKF logo printed on the outside of the packages. The bearings were planned to be exported.
During the raid, the exporting company was unable to provide supporting documents for the legitimate use of the rights of the SKF trademark. The customs service contacted the copyright holder and confirmed the doubts of the customs officials. The consignment has been blocked.
Since the beginning of the year, the Chinese Customs Service has launched a special operation for the customs protection of intellectual property rights under the name Longteng (Dragon Fly) Action 2020. This is another project, repeated from year on year, aiming at eliminating the violation of intellectual property rights when exporting from China.
