Shanghai: Illegal Expo Tags Seized by Customs


Local customs recently seized a shipment of more than 20,000 tags marked with the logo of the World Expo 2010.

The shipment imported from Italy was designed for sales promotion with each of the tags covered in silver film that can be scratched away to win potential prizes, which bore the title "Expo2010Shanghai" at the bottom.

The importers cannot prove that the use of the Expo's name was authorized, so customs found the shipment to be illegal and infringing.
