Mu Zi Mei condoms?

Beijing Nabeitong Company has succeeded in registering 'Mu Zi Mei' as a brand name for condoms. The registration process will take another 16 to 19 months to be completed, so Mu Zi Mei (aka Li Li) still has a little while to contest it. Which I damn well would if I were her.

This information comes courtesty of Justin Mitchell who emailed about a posting on Hailey Xie's blog. Hailey Xie's blog is here. A news report about the new condom on China Youth Online (in Chinese) is here.
