China's Qiaodan sportswear sues Michael Jordan for reputation infringement


08:15, April 10, 2013

BEIJING, April 10 (Xinhua) -- China's Qiaodan Sportswear Co. Ltd has sued NBA legend Michael Jordan for infringement on right of reputation and claimed 8,000,000 U.S. dollars compensation.

The Quanzhou Court of the Fujian Province received the file on March 29 and accepted the lawsuit on April 2, a suit which also asked Jordan to stop the infringement and apologize to the company, the Securities Daily reported on Tuesday.

Jordan announced he had sued the Qiaodan company for using his name and image illegally on February 23, 2012, and asked about 50, 000,000 RMB (over 8,000,000 dollars) compensation. The case was accepted by a Shanghai court, which has never held a court.

Jordan's announcement came just a week before the Qiaodan Sportswear went public. The company's IPO was suspended due to the suit.

The Chinese translation of the name of 'Jordan' pronounces ' Qiaodan'.
