Chinese Piaggio MP3 Knockoff Seized From EICMA Floor for Copyright Infringement
Here’s an EICMA highlight for you, readers. Italian police officers seized a Chinese-made scooter from the showroom floor for copyright infringement.

Yiben is part of the Taizhou City Kaitong Motorcycle Manufacture company, claiming “a good reputation with clients both at home and abroad for their reliable quality, innovative designs, and reasonable prices” on its official website.
The website also has a page in its “About Us” section labeled “Honor”. That section is blank.
