BEIJING， Dec. 8 (Xinhua) -- China's Supreme People's Court (SPC) on Thursday overturned an earlier ruling by Beijing courts to favor Michael Jordan's trademark appeal against a Chinese firm that allegedly infringed upon the name right of the NBA icon.
The SPC's judgment was broadcast live on its website. The court issued different judgments in the 10 combined cases. It approved Jordan's appeal that the trademark of his name's translation in Chinese characters infringed on his right to own his name and violated the country's trademark law.
The top court also ordered the trademark bureau to recall its previous verdict and to issue a new ruling on the use of the Chinese characters in the brand. Meanwhile， the court ruled that the former Chicago Bulls star does not own the right of name for Qiaodan， Chinese pinyin transcription of his surname Jordan， and held that the Qiaodan Sports Co. Ltd did not register the trademark through deception or other improper means.
Jordan released a public statement after the final trial of the years-long case.
"I'm happy that the Supreme People's court has recognized the right to protect my name through the ruling in the trademark case. Chinese consumers deserve to know Qiaodan Sports and its products have no connection to me，" the statement said.
The former NBA star has a worldwide reputation and is well-known in China as "Qiaodan." He said he respected the Chinese legal system and looked forward to the Shanghai court's rulings on a separate naming rights case.
In addition to his name， Jordan's old jersey number 23， basketball player logo and even names of his children， were also registered as the company's brands. He has made appeals against Chinese sportswear company since 2012， but these were rejected by the trademark bureau of the Beijing court.
The Chinese firm said in a statement on its official microblog that it respected the court's judgement and would carry out proper protection on the firm's products and their intellectual property rights.
Ma Dongxiao， attorney for the firm， told Xinhua the judgment wouldn't effect most of the products and the company could continue to use "Qiaodan."
Liu Ning， a Chinese trademark law expert， explained that the company would be protected if the controversial trademarks had been registered within five years. Jordan sued in 2012， and only three related trademarks after 2008， mostly drinks， swimming suits and decorations， were banned.
"The final judgment proves importance of credibility and integrity for companies， and China will spare no efforts to protect intellectual property， and consumers' rights and interests should not be infringed upon by any means，" said Liu.
"Consumers would intend to buy Qiaodan company's sports goods if they were misled to believe that the brand was associated with Michael Jordan. It's simple， and the company has to pay some price if there is any deception， regardless of whether or they could keep using the brand，" Liu added.

CHICAGO, Dec. 23 (Xinhua) -- A group of young black men stand on the sidewalk in Chicago's West Englewood neighborhood, and watch as a Crown Victoria with four white plainclothes police officers in it drives up, slows down Nike Vapormax Triple Navy , pokes their heads out of the window, and speeds off.
Bulletholes are scattered randomly across houses on the street. A broken basketball rim sways in the wind, dangling from a single bolt. The jagged sidewalks are in various states of disrepair and garbage litters empty lots that used to contain houses.
Quentin walked from his employer's administrative office to the service office, wearing the company T-shirt. Suddenly a police car jumped the curb in front of him Nike Vapormax Flyknit Triple Gold , and an officer sprang out. Grabbing him, the officer put Quentin in handcuffs.
After sitting him in the back of the cruiser for half an hour, police released him and drove off without an explanation. This is life in West Englewood.
For many Americans, the police killings of Eric Garner and Michael Brown triggered feelings of shock and outrage. For this West Englewood neighborhood Nike Vapormax Triple Gold , it was a routine tragedy, part of a very familiar reality.
The city seems to have abandoned this neighborhood; homicides and violent crimes happen frequently. The poverty rate in the West Englewood neighborhood is twice the national average, and unemployment is at 34.7 percent, nearly six times the national average.
Chicago Police Department statistics show 373 homicides in 2014 Nike Vapormax Flyknit Triple White , more than any other city in the United States, many of which happened in South Chicago.
Tension exists even with the older residents. Wayne Flowers is a private security guard who works for a company that secures construction sites. He grew up on the West Side of Chicago, but moved to Englewood in 1973.
Flowers freely admits he was involved in gang activities as a young man, but has since changed his path.
In his youth Nike Vapormax Triple White , Flowers was taken into a police station for questioning, in an attempt to "flip" him against a friend who had committed a crime. Instead of capitulating, Flowers resisted.
He says this infuriated the police officers, who he alleges began beating him Nike Vapormax Flyknit Off White , using the phone book as a "softener" to prevent bruises from appearing on his body, potentially defusing a possible complaint.
Recently, Flowers was pulled over for driving around a city bus that had stopped to pick up passengers. After taking his license and registration, the officer ran Flowers' name and saw his criminal record. This aroused the officer's suspicions of Flowers Nike Vapormax Off White , who walks with a cane. Flowers told Xinhua, "He asked me, was I in a gang? And I told him, I'm 63 years old Nike Vapormax Flyknit Triple Black , that was when I was a young kid, it's obvious that I wasn't participating in gang activity right now."
