Storage player Emulex has welcomed the conviction of a couple of counterfeiters that had been actively ripping off several brands.
By refurbishing recycled products and then putting forged trademarks on them the convicted fraudsters were selling host bus adapters that had an Emulex brand on.
A criminal court in Shenzhen convicted and fined the legal representative and general manager of Shenzhen Xinfengze Electronics Co. Ltd Mr Yang Jiaquan and his assistant Mr Liu Yibin.
In a statement Emulex said it was committed to fighting counterfeit to protect both its customers and channel partners.
"We actively monitor the market for cases of counterfeiting and go to great lengths to prevent potential damage to our customers that can result from this illegal activity," it stated.
