The Ninth Arbitration Court of Appeal left the said Decision in force.  One of the infringers disagreed with the judicial acts adopted by the first instance court and the appeal court and filed a cassation to the Court for Intellectual Property Rights. The cassation court ruled to return the cassation due to failure to pay the state fee for consideration of the cassation.
