Singer Sues Imitator For Name And Portrait Infringement

Chinese singer Jiang Feng recently filed a lawsuit against lookalike Ding Yong for name and portrait right infringement. Jiang seeks a total of 500,000 RMB in compensation from Jiang, 50,000 RMB of which is for mental distress. Ding, who has used Jiang’s name and image on his Weibo account for commercial propaganda purposes, was formerly claimed to have approached a plastic surgery clinic in Changchun with an impersonator of Jiang’s fiancée and actress Zhang Ziyi for surgery to make them look like their idols. One netizen said Jiang was only concerned with the relatively small sum due to gambling losses.

          • Chris Bullock

            35 years old. Men my age write poetry about “second chances.”

            oh, so you know shanghai well.
            i left shanghai last winter. now stay in yun nan , a small county very close to kunming.

          • Chris Bullock

            Probably friendlier than Shanghai!

          • DD Bear!

            sure!
            most people here are farmers,especailly several famous rich ones, so, people are not snobbish.
            and now i find out i like here more and more. clean veg and air, big supermarkets, cinema, cafe, bars…
            and soon wal-mart will open , also quite some other brands.
            i am very happy!

          • Chris Bullock

            And good weather, since Kunming is the city of Spring, so you can 跳工厂舞 all day and night!

          • DD Bear!

            hahaha!
            i am too young and too cool to 跳广场舞!
            i run at home, normally 40 mins, then full of sweat.

          • Chris Bullock

            then you eat a big cake and ice cream?

          • Chris Bullock

            Why is there a DD in your name? This is your bra size?

          • DD Bear!

            yes, my bra size is d.

          • Chris Bullock

            Here, typically a pornstar or a bartender would advertise that information.

      • Mihel

        Not her fault. In China english teachers are not good at teaching english apparently.

  • Jeroen 雨龙

    the singer’s name is wang feng… misspelling it in an article about name infringement…
