Chinanews.com Client, February 28 (Li Jinlei) Recently, some applicants have applied for trademark registrations such as "Vulcan Mountain", "Thunder Mountain", "Reidswei" and "Li Wenliang", which has caused heated discussions.
The State Intellectual Property Office's Trademark Office said on the 28th that Li Wenliang was an ophthalmologist at the Wuhan Central Hospital and died unfortunately after receiving a new infection with pneumonia. The use or registration of his name as a trademark is likely to cause significant social adverse effects. Therefore, the application for trademark registration of "Li Wenliang" should be rejected according to law.
Vulcan Mountain Hospital and Lei Shenshan Hospital are the names of frontline hospitals in Wuhan to fight the epidemic. They are the focus of public opinion during the epidemic prevention and control. They are one of the important signs that the people of the whole country are united to fight the epidemic. Registration by other applicants other than Vulcan Mountain Hospital and Lei Shenshan Hospital as a trademark is likely to cause significant social adverse effects. Therefore, applications for trademark registration of "Vulcan Mountain" and "Thunder Mountain" should be rejected in accordance with the law.
