Recently, a Xiamen-based company declared the export of men’s pants. However, the officers found that some of the goods inside the container were disorderly packed in cartons or sacks, including 11,735 short pants and 18,208 T-shirts with “adidas” mark, 9,132 T-shirts with hook graph, 6,064 short pants with TOMMY HILFIGER mark, 2,432 shirts and 2,432 pants with Hurley mark.
Because the exporter had no legal certificate of those goods, the Customs contacted the trademark owners to confirm the IPR infringement.
