What are parallel imports? The court in Tien Ying Hong Enterprise v Beenion (2010) stated that parallel imports refer to goods which are lawfully manufactured overseas but imported and distributed in Malaysia by a person other than the registered proprietor of the trademark. Parallel imports are non-counterfeit goods which originate from the trademark proprietor.
