A local court in Beijing has reportedly refused to deal with a trademark dispute between former NBA star Michael Jordan against sportswear maker Qiaodan Sports.

The decision comes on the grounds that the firm’s registered trademark of Qiaodan, which is also the basketball legend’s Chinese-version name, carries no exclusive implication.

Jordan is seeking to continue his legal action in Shanghai.

The former NBA star insists the sportswear company has used his Chinese name and Jersey 23 without authorization.

The Chinese company, which is currently preparing to raise around 170 million U.S. dollars in a public listing in Shanghai, has claimed the brand is built up according to Chinese law.
