  Counterclaim plaintiff has malicious action

  The association stated in the statement that the current so-called trademark lawsuit of Shanghai Bili Company is to defend its rights by touching porcelain with a trademark that does not have a basis for rights, and it is maliciously collecting money. This behavior has caused public outrage in the industry.

  A reporter from Beiqing Daily learned that at present, many corporate attorneys who were sued by Shanghai Bili in court said that they had received notices from the court of the plaintiff's withdrawal of the lawsuit, and many of these cases had already been completed.

However, some lawyers said that the defendant companies did not accept the plaintiff's withdrawal, and some had already sent the court an application for non-withdrawal and a counterclaim, counterclaiming that the plaintiff had a malicious lawsuit; some had previously applied to the Supreme People's Court for retrial. The Supreme Court has accepted.
