The case of cancellation of “Languiren” trademark, which received much attention from numerous tea makers, was recently concluded by Beijing Municipal Higher People’s Court. On May 8, 2009, Beijing Municipal Higher People’s Court in its final judgment held that “Languiren” was a general name for a kind of tea product. Therefore, Beijing Municipal Higher People’s Court finally decided to reject the appeal filed by the registrant of “Languiren” trademark “Chengmai Wancheng Tea Plant”, and to maintain the ruling and judgment to cancel the “Languiren” trademark made by China Trademark Review and Adjudication Board and Beijing Municipal First Intermediate People’s Court respectively. In the litigation, all the requests of the third party, Hainan Provincial Tea Association, represented by the Lawyer Yazhou Zhang and Qingkai Gui from Unitalen Attorneys At Law were fully granted .
