The brand’s two registered trademarks, both for “ITSupremeNow,” have reportedly been revoked by the China Trade Mark Office (CTMO) after Supreme’s continued legal action, including working directly “with local law enforcement in China to enforce its rights to its trademarks,” as stated to HYPEBEAST.

Though Supreme US currently holds no registered marks in China, there are 85 applications pending according to CTMO filings.
