Winnie-the-Pooh and customs

The range of goods that can be imported for China depends a lot upon intellectual property rights. Though Chinese manufactures are remarkable for their artfulness they can not outwit rightholders sometimes.

Thus, one of Sealiner’s customers addressed us with a request to arrange delivery of a consignment of children toys, which had already been prepared for shipment from China.

Our specialists, keen on import of Chinese toys throughout years of their work, made a detailed inquiry of the goods. It is not a secret that many Chinese manufactures producing toys for children are not quite careful in the question of intellectual property, i.e. they can write down the legendary brand as «ABIBAS» on a product and in good conscience send it for export. That is why we needed a detailed description of goods supported by its pictures.

In the pictures of some items our specialists found out a recognizable figure of Disney’s Winnie-the-Pooh named as «Happy Bear».

It became clear that the goods with Disney characters pictures would not pass the customs control due to absence of required documents. It is not important for legislation what kind of goods you export — a toothpaste, a pencil-case or a toy. As the result the customer had to refuse from that doubtful goods and all pirate copies of toys were withdrawn from a container. The owner of the cargo suffered losses, of course, but the total sum of that loss was much less than it could be if the cargo had been arrested at the customs border for violation of intellectual property legislation. Next time the customer addressed Sealiner for an expert advice at the very first stage of negotiations with the manufacturer and for selection of goods for purchase.
