Didi hails IPR success, takes back its name
02.01.2019

    Ride-hailing platform Didi has won a trademark infringement lawsuit against a local relocation company who had used the name Didi.

    Shanghai Intellectual Property Court ruled that Didi Banchang must stop using the name immediately and pay 600,000 yuan (US$90,000) to Didi Chuxing, the nation’s largest mobile ride-hailing platform.

    The relocation company was also ordered to issue a statement in designated newspapers to clarify that it has nothing to do with the Beijing-based car-hailing firm.

    The domain name of the relocation company’s official website didibc.com will also be transferred to Didi Chuxing.

    The relocation company violated the principle of credibility and commercial ethics as well as misleading the public with the name Didi, said Yang Wei, a judge with the court.
