A Swedish SME received an urgent email from a Chinese law firm regarding registration of their product series name in China. The SME had already registered their company name in the classes relevant to their business, but had failed to register their product name, and so were very concerned that they may need to rebrand. The law firm that sent the email offered to raise an opposition to the trade mark, and included details about the deadline for opposition, which was fast approaching.
