WIPR reports about the fact that the new elected US President Donald Trump received a trademark registration regarding his name in China. According to this information he possesses another 49 pending trademark applications in the country.

Some lawyers in US  (The Independent и The Washington Post.), however, consider that this could create a problem with the US Constitution which bars civil servants from accepting anything of value from foreign countries without the consent of Congress.

Apart from this the case is interesting in light of the recent successful trademark battle over Michael Jordan name in China which was ended after many years fighting with a local company.
