HONG KONG Chanel, Prada and three other luxury goods companies have won China's first copyright verdict against a shopping mall landlord, their lawyer said.
Beijing Xiushui Haosen Clothing Market, a landlord at the Silk Street shopping mall in Beijing, failed to stop vendors from selling goods known to have been pirated, according to a translation of a Dec. 19 verdict provided Wednesday by Joseph Simone, a partner at Baker & McKenzie in Hong Kong.
The court ordered the landlord and vendors to pay $13,000 in compensation to the plaintiffs, which included Burberry, LVMH MoÃ«t Hennessy Louis Vuitton and Gucci
