On November 15, the anti-counterfeiting team sent the banners with the words "Protect intellectual property rights, Care about enterprise brand" to Wenling Public Security Bureau and Wenling Market Supervision Administration Bureau. They expressed their sincere thanks to them for their careful, fair, fast and efficient efforts to crack down on counterfeit brand products, safeguard the legitimate rights and interests of enterprises and strive to create a good business environment.
After receiving the banner sent by the company, the leader responsible for handling related cases said: the praise of the enterprise is the recognition of our work, but also a spur. In the future work, we will continue to take strong measures to strengthen IPR enforcement, crack down on violations, safeguard the legitimate rights and interests of enterprises, and create a fair, just and orderly market development environment for producers and operators.
The circulation of fake and inferior products into the market has brought huge security risks to the consumer market. In order to eliminate the infringement phenomenon in a more professional and effective way, and safeguard the relevant rights and interests of consumers, partners and companies, we have set up the anti-counterfeiting agency and improved the working mechanism. The company has set up a special anti-counterfeiting team to go to the front line of the market, and jointly carry out rights protection actions with the municipal supervision, public security and other departments to severely crack down on the infringement activities such as "brand-name" and "fake goods".
In June 2021, the company cooperated with Daxi Branch of Market Supervision Bureau of Wenling, Zhejiang Province, and seized hundreds of fake and inferior "C&U" human bearing products in a factory. Due to the large amount of money involved, the leaders of the Market Supervision Bureau of Wenling paid great attention to the case and immediately transferred it to the Public Security Bureau of Wenling, who filed the case for investigation. The case investigators went to Shanghai, Shandong and other places for investigation and collection of evidence, and transferred it to the Procuratorate of Wenling for examination and prosecution, and the Procuratorate of Wenling prosecuted the accused units and individuals according to law. In September 2022, the defendant was fined 110,000 yuan for selling goods with counterfeit registered trademarks. The defendant was sentenced to eight months in prison and fined 60,000 yuan for selling goods with counterfeit registered trademarks. This action has effectively deterred the illegal vendors and carried out a strong crackdown on the infringement and illegal acts. It not only maintains the brand image of "C&U", but also highlights the company's commitment to "providing quality products to the society" and protects the legitimate rights and interests of consumers.
Fake and shoddy products not only seriously damage the brand image of "C&U" and the legitimate rights and interests of consumers, but also seriously disturb the market order. We will continue to fight against counterfeiting and protect our rights, and work with relevant law enforcement departments to maintain the healthy development of the market. Consumers should be wary of cheap and inferior bearing products and buy them from regular people-oriented specialty stores or regular consumption channels to avoid major safety risks or accidents caused by fake products.
