Shanghai, March 6 (Xinhua) A Chinese court has opened trial against a Shanghai company which French luxury firm Louis Vuitton Malletier (LV) claims had been selling fakes of its products.
The court said Louis Vuitton claimed the defendants - Wu Beiwen, her husband and her father - violated the company’s trademark rights by selling fake Louis Vuitton products.
Louis Vuitton wants the court to stop the defendants selling products under its registered trademark and claims financial compensation of one million yuan (about $146,200).
The court said Aug 2, 2008, police found more than 230 leather products, watches and clothes under the international luxury brands such as Louis Vuitton, Gucci and Chanel among others at a store here.
The products were estimated to be worth some 1.63 million yuan.
The court was told that Wu Beiwen and her business partners started selling counterfeit international brand products in 2001.
