TRADEMARKS IN ASIAN COUNTRIES
We recommend registering your trademarks in Asian countries, and doing both in its original version and Asian characters, whether you are present or intend to operate in these markets in the near future, or preventively.
The crisis is exacerbating cases of piracy of reputable trademarks, registered in these countries by mafias that mobilize the police and judicial authorities, with the aim of extorting businesses economically affected by counterfeiting of its trademarks in Asian countries.
These organizations go as far as to halt the manufacture and export of Western companies, with the consequent economic damage that entails.
We would like to mention that in case of piracy, actions to defend their rights and interests, especially in China, Vietnam and Korea, can involve long procedures, with a higher cost than they would involve if you seek protection of the trademark.
