Someone Beat Wang Lei To Trademarking His ‘Fish Selling Bro’ Logo In China; Now The Getai Singer Can’t Sell His Products There
"Now I have become the pirated copy," says Wang Lei, who is stuck with hundreds of cartons of coffee.
Local getai singer Wang Lei has been raking in the big bucks selling frozen seafood via Facebook live.
The 60-year-old, who is now better known as ‘Mai Yu Ge’ (‘Fish Selling Bro’) or the ‘Fishmonger King’, has become so successful that he’s landed lucrative endorsement deals and earned himself tons of fans, including some famous ones too.
So it’s no surprise that he decided to cash in on his fame and launch his own line of ‘Fish Selling Bro’ merchandise.
Last July, he filed to trademark his logo in Malaysia, China, Taiwan, and Singapore, in anticipation of launching his own brand of coffee. However, his plans hit a snag when he found out that someone had beat him to the trademark in China. By one month.
