Bridgestone wins trademark infringement lawsuit in China

Bridgestone won a trademark infringement lawsuit against Chinese tyre manufacturer Liangshan Water Margin Tire Co., Ltd. (Water Margin), in the Suzhou Intellectual Property Court.

In June 2018, Bridgestone filed the lawsuit claiming that tyre manufacturing and sales activities conducted by Water Margin, under the FULISITONG brand, infringed on the company’s trademark rights by utilising a brand mark that resembled the Company’s Bridgestone registered trademarks. In May 2019, the Suzhou Intellectual Property Court found in favour of Bridgestone and ordered Water Margin to cease tyre manufacturing and sales activities that are in violation of the company’s trademark rights. They were also required to pay damages to the Company in the amount of roughly 3,300,000 Chinese yuan (approximately 52.8 million Japanese yen.)
