Ningbo Customs Seizes 1,200 Shoddy Sports T-Shirts


ADIDAS, PUMA, NIKE and CHICAGO BULLS, all well-known sports brands, are often imitated unlawfully by merchants. In March, Ningbo Customs-affiliated Beilun Customs House intercepted a batch of sports T-shirts suspected of infringing the above brands.


When inspecting the batch of T-shirt export to Iran, the officers found the branded ones looking abnormal. These T-shirts are roughly packed and shoddily branded, feeling low-quality, an officer said. By carefully viewing, for example, you can find some shirts marked with abibas, instead of adidas.


Through identification by trademark owners, those T-shirts, totally 1,200 pieces worth CNY16, 800, were infringing on Adidas Originals, PUMA, NIKE and CHICAGO BULLS intellectual property rights. Now, they have been detained by the Customs.



Ningbo Customs officers were counting the IPR-infringing T-shirts.
