Government has won a ruling in its favour in the Beijing Intellectual Property Courts in China.

In January 2012, the Fijian government had applied to register three trademarks in China – they were “FIJI PURE MAHOGANY”, “FIJI PURE” and FPM” at the Trademark Office of China.

After examination, the Trademark Office refused registration of the three marks which was also upheld by Trademark Review and Ad-judication Board on appeal.

The Fijian Government decided to take their case as an administrative lawsuit before the Beijing Intellectual Property Court.

The Court supported all of the Fijian Government’s claims and cancelled all earlier decisions.
