Three face charges over counterfeit Haibao toys

THREE men were charged with violating registered trademarks by Huangpu District prosecutors yesterday after they allegedly produced and sold fake Haibao plush toys worth 440,000 yuan (US$64,925).

According to prosecutors, the trio set up a workshop in Yangzhou City, Jiangsu Province, and sold the toys with a World Expo logo, which is a registered trademark. They sold more than 250,000 fake toys for a total of 440,000 yuan from October to January, prosecutors said.

Bai Yanzhao, 29, a Jiangsu native, arrived in Shanghai a few years ago and met Zhao Chaozhong, a vendor who is still at large in this case.

They rented five houses in Yangzhou's suburbs in August. They allegedly bought sewing machines and cloth, then hired some women to produce the toys.

Bai rented a room in Shanghai as a warehouse. He hired his father, Bai Maidui, and Zhao's younger brother, Zhao Chaolong, to sell the toys.

Police caught Bai Maidui and Zhao Chaolong on February 25. Bai Yanzhao was captured the next day.
