A trademark dispute has arisen in Indonesia over “Ah Huat”, a product of Power Root. The company decided to appeal and refused to pay Rp74.5 billion (RM23 million).

In a statement issued by Power Root, the company said that it had received a notice from the Indonesian Commercial Court stating that the Indonesian distributor, CV Ego Sun Star Sukses Mandiri (CV Ego), had filed a claim for trademark infringement of the “Ah Huat” brand name and had demanded that Power ROot pay Rp 74.5 billion in damages.

On February 21, 2013, Power Root commissioned CV Ego to register the trademark “Ah Huat”; however, one day prior to that, an Indonesian citizen, Lin Guoqiang, had registered the trademark without Power Root’s knowledge. Power Root claimed that the trademark registrations by Lim and CV Ego were made in bad faith because CV Ego knew that the “Ah Huat” brand was owned by Power Root.

Power Root stated that their lawyers believed that there were sufficient grounds to appeal to the Indonesian Supreme Court. Therefore, Power Root strongly denies any allegations concerning the trademark and defends its rights and interests.
