AmorePacific sues firm behind fake Laneige Chinese shopping site

AmorePacific is suing a Chinese company over allegations that the online mall set up a webpage purporting to be Laneige’s official Chinese web presence in order to sell the brand’s products on the black market, according to a report published by the Korea Times.

The site in question, laneigeonline.com sold imported products without the necessary customs clearance, and was found by the Chinese authorities to have counterfeited the brand’s official homepage.

“Laneige products sold in China should be imported and distributed through its AmorePacific corporate body in Shanghai. Those products sold via counterfeit websites are a clear violation of Laneige’s trademark right, causing damage to customers’ trust in our products,” a spokesperson for AmorePacific told the Korea Herald.
