Re: In response to false claims by Beijing Dong Fang Yi Si about the ownership and operation of this website
Beijing Dong Fang Yi Si Intellectual Property Agency (Beijing Dong Fang Yi Si), which calls itself "Beijing East IP" and is operated and majority owned by Mr. Lulin Gao, a former employee who had been receiving monthly salaries for more than 10 years from us, East IP Inc., started to make false claims in various venues that this website, www.eastip.com
, (1) had been operated by and represented Beijing Dong Fang Yi Si, and (2) is not related to East IP Inc.
We hereby confirm and wish to clarify the follows:
1. The domain name "eastip.com" was registered on March 9, 2000 (two and a half years before the establishment of Beijing Dong Fang Yi Si) by our parent company and transferred to East IP Inc. for use.
2. We, East IP Inc., own and solely use this website as our company home page, as well as emails under the domain name "eastip.com" since then.
3. During the whole period, we have never transferred the website to any other party, have never authorized any other party to operate the website under their name, have never authorized any other party to register themselves under the MIIT as the owner / operator of this website. Beijing Dong Fang Yi Si's claim that this website was operated by them and represented them is simply false.
4. "EAST IP" is a registered trademark under class 42 in China owned by us, East IP Inc. covering various patent, trademark and legal services. According to the Trademark Law of China, using trademark "EAST IP" in connection with the covered services without authorization of us constitutes an infringement of the exclusive right to use this registered trademark. In addition, to use a registered trademark as an enterprise name and confuse the public could constitutes unfair competition.
5. Beijing Dong Fang Yi Si, which calls themselves "Beijing East IP", is no longer affiliated with us, East IP Inc. since October 2012, and is not authorized by us to use the registered "EAST IP" trademark in anyway.
