Shanghai Xingbake loses to the real Starbucks

by on January 2nd, 2006

Starbucks, the US coffee shop chain, has won a landmark lawsuit in a Shanghai court against a local rival that had adopted its Chinese name and a similar logo.

Chinese media said the court had ordered Shanghai Xingbake to stop using its name, to pay Rmb500,000 ($62,000) in compensation to Starbucks and to issue an apology in a local newspaper.
