JPO Rejects "AINU" Trademark Application by Chinese National

On March 23, 2021, documents publicly issued by the Japan Patent Office (JPO) revealed the rejection of an application for registration of the trademark "AINU", which is the name of the indigenous people of northern Japan. The problematic application, which had been filed by a Chinese national from Guangdong province, was deemed potentially injurious to the realization of harmonious societal coexistence in which the Ainu people are respected.

The published documents pointed out that "AINU" was "easily recognizable as an alphabetic representation of the name of the indigenous tribe" and stated that, in view of the enactment of the Ainu Policy Promotion Act and increasing awareness regarding promotion of Ainu culture, "monopolistic use of the trademark would go against public societal benefit to Japan, and is potentially injurious to public order and morality".
