Trademarks - Intellectual Property

Several registered trademarks has been made, by ZAO Wou-Ki himself, then by Madam Françoise MARQUET, in order to protect the name and signature of the artist who are the first attributes characterizing it.

The protection thus granted to the signature of ZAO Wou-Ki and his surname originates in France and extends internationally to cover all territories including China, Japan and the United States.

This legal protection granted by the trademark law is a means to strengthen the fight against counterfeiters who might be tempted to reproduce or imitate the signature of ZAO Wou-Ki, and who thus expose themselves to severe civil and criminal penalties.
