A Chinese company locked in a trademark dispute with Starbucks has appealed a court order to change its name for sounding too similar to that of the American coffee giant, a newspaper reported Wednesday.

Shanghai’s No. 2 Intermediate People’s Court ruled earlier this month that Shanghai Xingbake Cafe Corp. Ltd. engaged in “illegitimate competition” by using Starbucks’ Chinese name and imitating the design of its coffee houses.
