Basic Facts 【基本案情】
Shenzhen Ellassay Clothing Co., Ltd. was established on June 8, 1999. On December 18, 2008, the Company obtained the trademark “歌力思” (No. 1348583) by means of transfer and the trademark was approved to be used on commodities of category 25, including clothing and the registration was approved in December 1999. On November 19, 2009, the renewal of registration of the trademark was approved, effective from December 28, 2009 to December 27, 2019. In addition, Shenzhen Ellassay Clothing Co., Ltd. was also the registrant of the trademark “ELLASSAY” (No. 4225104). The trademark was approved to be used on commodities of category 18, including (animal) skin, wallets, traveling bags, folders (leather), leather straps, fur, umbrellas, walking sticks, handbags, and shopping bags, effective from April 14, 2008 to April 13, 2018. On November 4, 2011, Shenzhen Ellassay Clothing Co., Ltd. was renamed Shenzhen Ellassay Costume Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as “Ellassay Company,” defendant of first instance). On March 1, 2012, the registrant of the aforesaid trademark “歌力思” was altered to Ellassay Company. 深圳歌力思服装实业有限公司成立于1999年6月8日。2008年12月18日,该公司通过受让方式取得第1348583号“歌力思”商标,该商标核定使用于第25类的服装等商品之上,核准注册于1999年12月。2009年11月19日,该商标经核准续展注册,有效期自2009年12月28日至2019年12月27日。深圳歌力思服装实业有限公司还是第4225104号“ELLASSAY”的商标注册人。该商标核定使用商品为第18类的(动物)皮;钱包;旅行包;文件夹(皮革制);皮制带子;裘皮;伞;手杖;手提包;购物袋。注册有效期限自2008年4月14日至2018年4月13日。2011年11月4日,深圳歌力思服装实业有限公司更名为深圳歌力思服饰股份有限公司(以下简称歌力思公司,即本案一审被告人)。2012年3月1日,上述“歌力思”商标的注册人相应变更为歌力思公司。
In June 2011, plaintiff of first instance Wang Suiyong applied for the registration of the trademark “歌力思” (No. 7925873) and the trademark was approved to be used on commodities of category 18, including wallets and handbags. On July 7, 2004, Wang Suiyong once applied for the registration of the trademark “歌力思 and Device” (No. 4157840). Afterwards, on April 2, 2014, the Higher People's Court of Beijing Municipality rendered a judgment of second instance and determined that the trademark impaired the prior trade name right of Ellassay Investment Management Co., Ltd., which was an affiliated enterprise of Ellassay Company. Therefore, the application for registration filed by Wang Suiyong should not be approved. 一审原告人王碎永于2011年6月申请注册了第7925873号“歌力思”商标,该商标核定使用商品为第18类的钱包、手提包等。王碎永还曾于2004年7月7日申请注册第4157840号“歌力思及图”商标。后因北京市高级人民法院于2014年4月2日作出的二审判决认定,该商标损害了歌力思公司的关联企业歌力思投资管理有限公司的在先字号权,因此不应予以核准注册。
