China has been a well-known source for trademark abuse ranging from Trademark Squatting to Knock Offs. One of our favorite menswear designers, Michael Bastian, just one a landmark case in the Chinese Trademark Review and Adjudication Board.

Bastian commented: “This is a huge decision that provides a sense of confidence for foreign celebrities entering the Chinese market. Specifically, it allows me to freely use my name and IP to build out my brand in China. The fashion conscious public in China will now know that Michael Bastian apparel and accessories offered through my channels are the real thing.”

Michael Bastian said, “I hope this sets precedence and makes it easier for other fashion designers and members of the creative community to regain and protect their IP in China.” If you are unfamiliar with the iconic menswear brand that features hot models from the Soul Artist Management Model Agency, then here is a look at their current season.
