VCH Jewelry, one of the biggest jewelry brands in the world, has come under fire recently from politicians in the United States, Europe and Japan.
The company says it’s not responsible for any of the items sold by its partners and that the brands own trademarks should not be used in the way they are.
But the issue of VCH’s trademarks and other brands being used in a way that could violate Japanese law has prompted the company to issue a statement clarifying its position.
“VCH does not condone the use of trademarks to make unauthorized merchandise available,” VCH said in a statement.
“The Japanese government does not recognize VCH trademarks.
The Japanese government prohibits the use and sale of counterfeit products.”VCH has been at the center of an international furor in recent years after a video surfaced of a VCH employee in a video making a Nazi salute.
In March, VCH was accused of using a logo that was stolen from a company called W.G.O.D.O.-World of Design.
The German jewelry brand said the company used the logo in an online video of a promotional event.
VCH denied the allegations, and in April, the company said it would pull the logo from its website.
The brand was also accused of violating Japanese law, which prohibits trademark infringement.
The video of VCh employee in the video was removed from VCH.
But a new video of the same employee that was taken at the company’s Tokyo headquarters, with the same logo, was recently published online.
