The Estee Lauder Companies faces NetEase Kaola in Chinese courts

The Estee Lauder Companies’ Chinese division is said to be suing cross-border e-commerce platform Kaola for offering MAC cosmetics for sale without authorization, according to a report published by Technode.

The lawsuit, which was launched by the US prestige giant back in  2017 is currently being tried by the First Intermediate People’s Court in Congqing. Lauder is hoping to secure an apology, prevent Kaola from making further sales and RMB1 million in compensation.

In a separate suit, filed in February, 2018 by China’s Consumer Association, NetEase also stands accused of selling counterfeit Estee Lauder-branded skin care products.
