Tesla filed a trademark lawsuit against similar trade signs in China

The world’s most famous electric vehicle manufacturer TESLA has initiated a lawsuit in China against the local company Sino Drinks Food Company for infringement of trademark TESLA and the following figurative mark:

Sino Drinks Food Company offers beer and liqueur under a similar name TESILIA and a similar figurative sign.

Most likely the grounds for the dispute will be a trademark with reputation and unfair competition because Tesla does not have a registered mark for alcohol in China. As far as it is known this Chinese company has registered about 200 other trademarks that imitate famous signs.
