Castel takes trademark battle with Pancho Campo's friend to China's Supreme Court
Daniel Li (Caves Maître), Robert Parker and Pancho Campo
Daniel Li – "just sign here please, Mr Parker..."
Decanter.com reports that:
'French wine merchant Castel is pursuing its trademark dispute in China at the country's Supreme Court and has said it will 'take any measures' to win.'
The trademark battle is with Panati Wine run by Daniel Li, under the name Caves Maître it was a major sponsor of Wine Future Hong Kong. Li sat next to Robert Parker on the stage during the Magic 20 tasting.
Presumably the eventual outcome of the case could have important implications for foreign companies trading in China.
