Revocation of a registered trademark

In China, the non-use cancellation can be initiated by any entity or individual after the trademark is registered for more than three years.

To prove the non-use status, a simple investigation report (usually an on-line search result) will be sufficient. After that, the burden of proof will be shifted to the trademark owner who needs to prove the real business use of the trademark during the past three years, counting back from the non-use cancellation filing date. To prove your trademark/logo "ABC" is  commerce in use or/and well-known brand  : including all IP certificates, company own web-site, all e-commerce platform, magazines, newspaper, photographs, promotional materials, products photos, Contract, Invoices and other commercial agreements. etc.

Non-use cancellation is a pragmatic and effective tactic to overcome citation in China.
