Cisco claims the product was “shanzhai”: three Shenzhen companies’ U.S. accounts were frozen.

Last week, Cisco filed a lawsuit alleging that three companies from Shenzhen, China, faked and sold their fiber transceiver products. Judge Davila of the Northern District of California court issued a restraining order freezing the bank accounts of the three companies in the United States for avoiding the transfer of funds, running the money, and so on.

Allegedly, the enterprises involved, including Shenzhen Usos, Shenzhen Weixun Guangtong, etc., are optical communication equipment manufacturers.

According to Cisco, three Chinese companies copied their transceivers and attached Cisco Logo. The judge asked the three companies to appear in court in mid-August for cross-examination and announced measures such as bans, marketing bans and a ban on destruction.

Cisco said the companies were taking advantage of the delays or shortages of some products caused by the outbreak to peddle fake and shoddy products to market. They argue that this not only infringes on Cisco’s trademark interests and corporate interests, but also potentially affects customer security because no one knows if there is a “backdoor” in counterfeit products to collect privacy and sensitive information.

Of course, themedia reports are only one of Cisco’s side of the rhetoric, in the end how the truth, leaving time to see.
