On January 2nd, 5 prosecutors from the Longyou County Procuratorate of Zhejiang Province came to Huzhen Town, Longyou County to give a lecture on "The Rule of Law First." Before entering the village, uncle Li, who was over eighty years old, held the prosecutor tightly. "Thank you very much, we old smokers can feel at ease for the new year." Uncle Li said that it happened illegally in Huzhen Town. The case of manufacturing a registered trademark mark needs to start with a confession case.
"I want to surrender." A middle-aged man voluntarily surrendered to the public security organs, claiming that he was the principal criminal in the case of illegally manufacturing a registered trademark, "Zong Zong". In early 2017, he opened a printing plant in Huzhen Township and failed to obtain the relevant trademark With the authorization of the owner, a large number of cigarette printing papers of Hongtashan, Yunyan, Nanjing, Shuangxi and other brands were illegally printed.
After receiving the surrender, the public security organs criminally detained "Zhang" and asked for approval to arrest him. During the review and arrest, the procurator of the Longyou County Procuratorate, when looking through the file, found that the co-criminals identified the surrendered man as "Zhang Zong". However, employees working in the printing factory said that the man was not "Zhang Zhang", which provoked the prosecutors to believe that the case might be sheltered. To this end, the Longyou County Procuratorate intervened in the case in advance and worked with the public security organs to ascertain the "General Zhang" identity.
After further investigation, it turned out that this "Mr. Zhang" was not Zhang, the principal culprit in the case, but his friend, Yu, who leased the printing plant's workshop. It turned out that between January 2010 and March 2012, Zhang had worked with others to run an underground factory that manufactures tobacco tipping paper in Cangnan County, Wenzhou City, and was later seized by the police. Zhang ran away and his associates committed a crime. The crime of illegally manufacturing a registered trademark was sentenced, and Cangnan police pursued Zhang on the Internet.
Because there was no other source of life, Zhang thought of starting an "old business". In March 2017, he and his former partner opened a printing factory for tobacco tipping paper in Longyou County. In order not to show up, he asked Yumou to help lease the factory building.
Without the authorization of the relevant trademark owner, the printing factory illegally printed more than 1,000 rolls of cigarettes from Hongtashan, Yunyan, Nanjing and Shuangxi. On February 23, 2018, the printing factory was seized, and the number of trademark marks in the finished finished paper of each brand seized reached more than 200 million, all of which were counterfeit.
On July 1, 2019, the court sentenced Yu to one year and six months' imprisonment for the crime of illegally manufacturing a registered trademark and a fine of 20,000 yuan. On November 7, 2019, the Longyou County Court made a first-instance judgment. Zhang was sentenced to six years in prison and fined 400,000 yuan for the crime of illegally manufacturing and selling illegally manufactured registered trademark marks. After the verdict was issued, Zhang did not appeal and the verdict has taken effect. (Prosecutor Daily Huang Haibin Yan Chen)
