|A shopper walks past a Qiaodan Sportswear retail shop in Beijing on Thursday. Photo: AP China's top court on Thursday ruled that three trademarks registered by Fujian-based Qiaodan Sportswear have violated basketball legend Michael Jordan's rights.
The Supreme People's Court (SPC) on Thursday overturned two decisions made by Beijing courts and asked the State Administration for Industry and Commerce to issue a ruling on the disputed trademarks.
Jordan is known as "Qiaodan" in Chinese.
"I am happy that the Supreme People's Court has recognized the right to protect my name through its ruling in the trademark cases Nike Jordan Retro For Sale ," Jordan said in an e-mailed statement cited by Bloomberg. "Chinese consumers deserve to know that Qiaodan Sports and its products have no connection to me."
Qiaodan Sportswear, however, said the ruling would not interfere with the company's operations. Of the 68 disputed trademarks the company has filed, the SPC has ruled in favor of the firm in 50 of them.
The company told sports.sina that the three trademarks are defensive trademarks and therefore would not stop the company from using the Chinese characters "Qiaodan" in its products or advertisements.
A defensive trademark is applied by a well-known trademark owner for goods or services that are not intended to be used, to prevent other traders from using it.
The company also said it plans to go public, the 21st Century Business Herald reported.
Although Jordan's court victory has limited impact Nike Jordan Shoes For Sale , the ruling is rare for foreign brands in China, where companies, including Apple and New Balance, have often come out on the losing end of trademark disputes.
"Because a trademark is an integral part of intellectual rights, the SPC decision will serve as a good example, proving that China will protect every company's or individual's intellectual property rights (IPR) in accordance with Chinese laws Nike Jordan For Sale ," Xu Xinming, a Beijing-based lawyer specializing in IPR told the Global Times.
Jordan accused Qiaodan Sportswear of using his name without authorization, as he believes "Qiaodan" to be a Chinese transliteration of "Jordan," but the Trademark Appraisal Committee rejected Jordan's 2012 appeal in 2014 to cancel the company's trademarks.
After the Beijing No.1 Intermediate People's Court ruled against him in 2014, he appealed to the Beijing High People's Court, which also rejected his claim in July 2015.
Last month Air Jordan Retro Shoes For Sale , China released a State-level guideline on providing better protection for property rights, stressing the need to intensify IPR protection.
The guideline also vowed to raise the amount of compensation for IPR violations, creating a punitive damages system to protect IPRs, including copyright and patent rights.
"Before the punitive damages system, the amount of compensation used to be very low under the principle of compensatory damages, meaning Air Jordan Retro For Sale , the punishment was inadequate in curbing infringements," Zhao Zhanling, a legal counsel with the Beijing-based Internet Society of China, told the Global Times.
"In many cases, the compensation could not even cover the plaintiff's legal fees, which encouraged violations Air Jordan Shoes For Sale ," Xu noted.
An information system will be established to identify counterfeit products, which will tarnish the credit record of violators, and their penalties will be made public, according to the guideline.
"The credit records will forever follow the violators, effectively serving as a warning to others that the punishment is not limited to one-time compensation, but will affect you for a long time Air Jordan For Sale ," Xu said.
The guideline also provides for a bigger role for IPR courts in China, unifying rulings on offenders, be they civil, criminal or administrative cases.
China's revised Trademark Law, set to strengthen intellectual property protection, took effect in May 2014 Jordan Retro Shoes For Sale , and an amendment passed by the country's top legislature in August 2014 raised the compensation ceiling for trademark infringement to 3 million yuan ($0.44 million), six times the previous limit.
The Beijing Administration for Industry and Commerce on Wednesday revealed 10 major cases of IPR infringement and counterfeit goods to the public. Among the cases, two companies were busted for illegally using Olympic symbols, and the violators were fined as much as 3.72 million yuan.
According to Wang Shan, the head of the agency's trademark department, Beijing has ruled on 1 Jordan Retro For Sale ,819 IPR infringement cases and counterfeit goods, 41 percent more than last year.

BERLIN， July 24 (Xinhua) -- Bayern Munich's 27-year-old Javier Martinez is back for action after an injury break. The central defender and midfielder missed Euro 2016 with the Spanish national team. Now the Spaniard is desperate to win new titles with new Bayern coach Carlo Ancelotti.
"He told us to take up a more vertical and direct style，" Martinez said in a recent Xinhua Interview.
On top， Martinez said he is looking forward to Bayern's U.S.-Tour starting this Monday and has no plan to return to Spain and join his former club Athletic Bilbao.
Following is the full text of the interview:
Xinhua: Some say Carlo Ancelotti is a coach with let's say a human touch as he is said to speak a lot with his players. Others have to take care because he sometimes raises his left eyebrow which is regarded as a warning sign. Well， how dangerous is it talking to him?
Martinez: (laughing) Dangerous， you must be kidding. I did not know him prior to him coming to Munich. I once played for Athletic Bilbao against one of his teams， but that was the only occasion we "met".
Xinhua: Meaning he is not a dangerous coach?
Martinez: (laughing) You like the word "dangerous". But I must disappoint you. The first impression was very， very good. He talks a lot with us and has a close.
