SHANGHAI: A court here has ordered two Chinese shoe manufacturers and a French supermarket to pay American sporting goods giant Nike 350,000 yuan ($46,000) compensation for copyright infringement.

Jinjiang Longzhibu Shoes Co Ltd and Jinjiang Kangwei Shoes Co Ltd manufactured shoes bearing a logo that was "basically the same" as one of Nike's - a silhouette of former basketball star Michael Jordan slam-dunking - the Shanghai No 2 Intermediate People's Court said yesterday. And the Shanghai branch of France-based retailer Auchan was guilty of selling the products without permission from Nike, it said.

"All three have conducted copyright infringement against Nike," the verdict read.
