Piaggio wins legal battle over plagiarism Vespa from China
Piaggio wins legal battle over plagiarism Vespa
Chinese Vespa copy prohibited
Scooters that look like the Vespa from Piaggio are a dime a dozen. Piaggio has now won a lawsuit against a Chinese manufacturer of such a Vespa copy.
Anyone who has recently visited the EICMA in Milan and has also looked around outside of the large manufacturer’s stands is likely to have noticed the numerous exhibition stands of the smaller, mostly Chinese manufacturers. At such stands, low-priced two-wheelers are often shown which, at least visually, are based on more prominent models from major motorcycle manufacturers. Manufacturers seem to be particularly keen on scooters, which are in terms of design Vespa serve. No wonder: the most famous Piaggio scooter has been very popular for decades and has long been a cult object outside of Italy. So that nothing changes, shy away Piaggio no conflict and, if the worst comes to the worst, also takes legal action against Vespa imitators.
Piaggio opposes copies
As Piaggio itself announced at the end of May 2020, a legal dispute against an unspecified Chinese manufacturer who is said to have copied the design of the Vespa has now been decided in favor of the Italians. Accordingly, the reproduction of a Vespa copy could be prevented at an early stage. The China Vespa was to be seen for the first time at EICMA 2019 in Milan, but was removed from the exhibition center after a complaint from Piaggio. In the subsequent process, the EU Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) decided that the Chinese Vespa features the Primavera “pretty much” reproduce and the scooter “own character” miss.
The Vespa has recently become an absolute cult object.
According to the EU patent office, Kumpan is not a copy
Piaggio has already taken action against plagiarism more frequently in the past. For example, Kumpan Electric had to vacate its stand at EICMA 2018 because Piaggio saw copies of the Vespa in the Kumpan scooters on display. The Italians filed criminal charges against Kumpan Electric and had the exhibition vehicles confiscated. Accordingly, there was nothing for EICMA visitors to see at the Kumpan stand. Piaggio proceeded in a similar way at INTERMOT in 2014: At that time, Vespa-like scooters from a Chinese manufacturer were to be seen. Here, too, Piaggio initiated legal action due to anti-competitive behavior and trademark violations. In cooperation with koelnmesse, the alleged Vespa imitations were then removed from the exhibition grounds. In contrast to the scooters from China, the verdict on the German manufacturer Kumpan is different: After almost two years of examination and evidence, the European Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) received the application from Piaggio “for the nullity of the Kumpan Electric design” rejected in full. According to the abbreviated version of the EUIPO’s opinion, the 1954 Ri model has enough features to distinguish it from other providers.
According to Piaggio’s own statements, in the past two years more than 50 registered trademarks have been deleted, the “fake” Wanted to bring Vespas to market.

How do you find Piaggio’s approach to defend against Vespa copies?
Somewhat exaggerated …
It was not just the legal dispute resolved at the end of May 2020 that shows that Piaggio has no fun when it comes to plagiarizing its own products. Bold imitators should dress warmly and expect legal consequences.
