5 May, 2011 : Niubizi trademarks for China
Yay! We have received our trademarks of Niu Bizi now for China. I think I am lucky I have somewhat of a short memory as Stuart reminded me when we had to do the application, how painful it was. I remember on Christmas day of 2009, I was still trying to figure out which subcategories to tick within the trademark category and it was really quite frustrating. Luckily Uncle Zhang came to my rescue and told me the categories they trademarked for Sanmao. He also told me this is the first thing you need to do in China before you do anything.
It is also quite timely as we are now thinking of several publishing projects. Here is a document from 1937, when my grandfather had to register Niu Bizi and here is one of the 27 certificates that we have today after registering the trademark, Niu Bizi.
