Castrol Ltd is seeking RMB 1 million  from a private company owner for infringing its trademark and company name.

The producer of lubricating oil is also asking for a public apology and a promise of no more infringements by Yao Yuxin, a  Zhejiang Province businessman, and his two companies – USA Jiashiduo Int’l Petroleum Group (Hong Kong) Ltd and Ningbo Yinzhou Jiashuai Lubricating Oil Factory.

Zhou Zhaohong, who runs a local moped repair workshop, is also listed as a defendant. Zhou is being sued for selling the product in question.

The Shanghai No. 2 Intermediate People’s Court heard the case yesterday with all the defendants absent.

No verdict was reached after the hearing.

Castrol said the name was recognized as a famous trademark in China last year.
